From the imagination of the architecture to now reality. Imagine how this cubic house look like from the inside and how the people living there walk on the floor, how they arrange their interior decorations...my entry for this weeks theme..sorry photo from the archive..

Kubuswoning (Cubic Houses)
(also known as Paalwoningen - Pole Dwellings)
Overblaak 70
The Netherlands

Piet Blom 1984

The original idea of these cubic houses came about in the 1970s. Piet Blom has developed a couple of these cubic houses that were built in Helmond.

The city of Rotterdam asked him to design housing on top of a pedestrian bridge and he decided to use the cubic houses idea. The concept behind these houses is that he tries to create a forest by each cube representing an abstract tree; therefore the whole village becomes a forest.

Interesting explications about funny buildings. In Switzerland we had "Corbusier" who was an architect ahead of his time !!
