70 Curious Cubic Structures

From Solar-Panelled Art Structures to Cubic Tooth Clinics

— November 18, 2013 — Art & Design
These curious cubic structures will certainly intrigue any architectural enthusiast who enjoys bold and distinct geometric shapes.

While a cube is often considered to be a very basic geometric concept, translating that shape into an architectural structure often results in a very abstract overall appearance. While some people prefer homes and buildings that are large and expansive, these cubic structures are offering a more tight and compact structural design, turning an ordinary geometric shape into a wonderfully modern home or office space. From nomadic cube abodes to playful cube offices, these creative cubic structures are showcasing that small sizes can still make a significantly large impact.

Showcasing how basic geometric shapes can translate into mesmerizing architecture designs, these cubic structures will definitely have people stopping in their tracks as they pass by.
