"John Sugden was born in Salt Lake City in 1922, the son of a Physician and Naturalist. He was an early pioneer of skiing in Utah, and joined the Tenth Mountain Division when it was formed with the outbreak of the war in Europe. He began service as an instructor in alpine warfare at Camp Hale in Colorado, and then fought for the entirety of the Italian campaign as an infantryman. Sugden was discharged at the end of the war in Chicago, and immediately enrolled in the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT), a new architecture school created by and for Mies van der Rohe, the last Director of the Bauhaus and the founder of the Second Chicago School. As a new student in a new institution, Sugden assisted with the design of the campus and worked directly under Mies on the design and detailing of Crown Hall, one of the most iconic Modern buildings in North America. Upon graduation Sugden was invited to join Meis's professional practice where he stayed until returning to Salt Lake in 1952 to begin a practice of his own and to accept an appointment as a full Professor in the University of Utah College of Architecture where he served from 1966 until his retirement as Emeritus Professor in 1993. Sugden built the Emigration Canyon house in 1965 to serve as a studio for his own practice and as a residence for his then professional partner Charlie Griffin. The two level building was not connected internally, but had two entrances, each served from grade on a steeply sloping site. The levels were internally connected in 1998 by the building's second and current owner (an accomplished local architect), to create a two story single family residence. The building has had only two owners in its history, and all have been architects and all have been extraordinarily careful to preserve the integrity and original character of the building and site. Like all of Sugden's work, the building frame is constructed entirely of A36 steel joined exclusively with moment-resisting welded connections. The floor and roof planes are flat exposed steel and concrete diaphrams, and all exterior walls above grade are completely glazed with the original bronze tinted glass secured directly to the structure by neoprene zipper gaskets. The frame itself rests on and exposed reinforced concrete foundation. There is no indication of stress from ground movement or live loading stress in the concrete or any other part of the fifty-three year old structure. This building is at once iconic of Sugden's work in Utah and atavistic as a direct (second generation) expression of both the Modern Movement and the Bauhaus school. The building is historic, intact, and ready for continued occupancy without restoration or modernization. ..."
