Bonneville Salt Flats Rest Stop Shelter

The first in an occasional series of unexpected monuments - Bonneville salt flats is famous for its salty flatness - hence the name - and its predictable weather....making it a prime choice for land speed record attempts and possibly chip consumption.... A striking mid-century modern form at the rest area next to the (also striking) salt flats west of the Great Salt Lake. This is one of those historically significant public designs, like those of the WPA, that remains uncredited, and often unappreciated, by today’s administrators.
