The Steiner American Building, located in Salt Lake City, Utah is locally significant under Criterion C in the area of Architecture as an important work of modernism by Utah architect William “Bill” Browning. Constructed in 1967, which is the period of significance, the building is also significant as a unique-example of Wrightian architecture in the state of Utah with elements of Deconstructivism. The construction of the building contributed to the transformation of South Temple Street from a grand residential thoroughfare to a thriving extension of Salt Lake City’s central business district. The design incorporated a modern style of architecture that fit within the surrounding historic residential context of the site. The interior reflects Steiner’s vision for how the office operates. Private offices along the exterior walls had views out into the city, with the central open office spaces being lit by the clearstory windows above. Although located within the boundaries of the South Temple Historic District (NRIS #82004147), the Steiner American Building is not contributing in the district because it was constructed outside the period of significance. However, it has significance in its own right as an iconic transitional building that blends aspects of the residential and commercial architecture on historic South Temple Street.
