The Big Cheese - revealed

Day #2: Where is this?

02 FEBRUARY 2017

Do you know where this is?

Time again for a "Where is this?" contest! Here are two views of a very interesting piece of Swiss Cheese in Tucson. As frequent visitors know, the first person to identify "Where is this?" will win a "fabulous" TDP t-shirt featuring the expressive Desert Museum ram. Good luck!  

DAY #2..... here are some clues:  This cement cheese slice is west of Campbell and north of Grant.  GOOD LUCK! 

Day #3....  So - too bad there were no guesses on this one! You may be very surprised to learn that this fun piece of abstract art/wall is the entrance to a government building! YES! This is the entrance to the Social Security Administration building on 1st Avenue!  Who knew that a government building could incorporate whimsy into its design??


  1. Nice. The architect (Rob Paulus) has a page about the building: http://robpaulus.com/projects/social-security-administration/

  2. Hi David! THANK YOU for this link! This is a fun building in Tucson and this entry is not visible from the 1st so it is kind of a "hidden" architectural treasure. Dianne

  3. Thank you, David Sewell, for providing this website that explains this very interesting entrance"wall" and covered veranda! As I surmised (uh...guessed!) it IS meant for children to play in and also to allow sunlight to filter in. This is a very well written article. Thanks again!
