One Thin Slice, 2010

tall narrow building
One Thin Slice

What do you do when your city lot is at a 25 degree angle to the street? You build a building that looks completely normal from the front, but comes to a very slim edge at one corner. It’s very interesting from the outside, but I’d love to see what the rooms look like inside—what could you possibly put in the corner of a room like that?

This building is one of many along Shiloh Street in Mt. Washington, Pittsburgh, that are angled to the street in much the same way. Buildings of an interesting shape and narrow streets on extreme hills (tomorrow) make the neighborhoods a very interesting visit.
