a peer amid building reflections

The "upside down pyramid" in east Tucson has housed a number of different banks over the years since being constructed in the late 70's for Western Savings and Loan.

 The angled mirrored glass gives lots of different perspectives that vary with position.

 looking up at the building captures me in the parking lot -- hard to do that with most building designs

I remember when there was grass being reflected off the bank, but they have since shifted to a low water usage landscape.  There sure would be a lot of things one could do as short term displays / art to take advantage of the angled reflection as seen by passing cars.

on the left, cars headed north on Wilmot; on the right, part of Speedway headed west
