Planning rules can make or break a city. Often, one must work in spite of the restrictions to find proportions, spatial organizations and proper orientations. This is the biggest challenge of Tucson's urban infill work. The Slice is so named because of the thin 40' x 155' slice of land on which it sits. The slender shape and curved roofline result from a desire for light-filled, flexible and functional spaces.
