Cube Architecture

This is the year of the cube and modern cubism in design and architecture according to The Trend Report 2011 by Jeremy Gutsche.  These volumes have always been in fashion, especially in architecture; check out these cool designs of cube architecture in major buildings by world-renowned architectural offices such as SANAA, OMA, Oppenheim, PTW Architects, 3XN Architects, 3deluxe, BIG Architects, NL Architects, Jun Mitsui & Associates Architects, Orange Architects, JAKOB + MACFARLANE ARCHITECTS and Bercy Chen Studio LP.

However, the leader of this ‘cube’ design revolution was no other than the great master Mies Van Der Rohe who brought a whole new meaning to the cube and designs associated with it, whether they were industrial or architectural designs. Enjoy, the ones which we’ve selected for you as past projects, and lets just wait and see what this 2011 trend will bring!

Syzygy is an international digital marketing agency and their office in Frankfurt, Germany was designed by the award winning architectural practice of 3deluxe in 2012 that transforms the interior of a building in central downtown into an inspiring working environment. Spreading over a surface…

Translated from Swiss by Google:

“Thematic staging with Internet connection for the Swiss national exhibition Expo 02, in the context of a traditional bathhouse. Instead of the pool came in glass cube with interactive projections. Based on a traditional Swiss bathhouse of ‘Cyberhelvetia’ Pavilion at the Expo 02 was conceived as a place of personal encounters and communication. Communication can now take place in a variety of ways, regardless of location or language. A shared bathroom does not require a real water: A blue luminous glass cube replaced the real swimming pool - the exhibition visitors dived headlong into the complex atmosphere of a virtually expanded reality and bathed in light and sound. The so-called pool was filled with 'virtual water’, which was enriched by the visitors on site and on the internet jointly with imaginative ways of life. The two-way interaction between real and virtual people present and the digital creatures ever created new atmospheric phenomenon pictures on the projected pool surface so that almost the impression of a living organism was created. The virtual water also responded weather permittion on the data from a weather station on the pavilion roof. As the Biel altered the artificial water surface of the pool their appearance throughout the day and the seasons, linking the artificial with the natural and the virtual with the real experienceable. On the surface and on the sides of the glass cuboid offered various interactive game installations the opportunity to get in touch with other guests in an unusual way. 2003 'Cyberhelvetia’ 'Communication in Space’ was awarded the Bronze Medal of the Art Directors Club Germany in the category.”
