It finally happened: The Herald Journal is reporting that yesterday, Logan's (in)famous "Golden Toaster" chapel, which had two chapels and could hold 8 student wards, was torn down on January 7.

The chapel was built in 1962, so it wasn't exactly historic; its architecture was more noted for its pecularity than any other virtues. The chapel was part of a land swap that occurred between the Church and Utah State University. Original plans called for a building to stand where the chapel is now; those have since been changed, but part of the deal was that the building had to come down. This continues a recurring theme in Church architecture--the Church is usually reluctant to sell its buildings and have them used in a different form, and it prefers to tear them down. (For example, the Church insisted that the Heber Tabernacle only be used for 'proper events' and that it be maintained--they preferred to lease it to the city instead of selling it.)
Lots of people are mourning the loss of this building--a good reminder that members become attached to their buildings and architecture, no matter what they look like. For some pictures of the iconic chapel, see the LDS Architecture blog.
