Sako Architects' Cube Tube is Futuristically Minimalist

The Cube Tube is a stunning structure with a square block motif. Not only is it shaped like a giant cube, hence its name, it is patterned with square windows in varying sizes, giving it a Tetris-like appeal that is very futuristic.

Designed by Keiichiro Sako and Fujii Yoko of Sako Architects, a firm based in Tokyo, Japan, the Cube Tube was built in the Economic Development Zone of Jinhua, China. It was constructed using reinforced concrete construction, aluminum walls as well as a glass curtain wall. Despite its unique windows, which happen to let in a lot of natural light, the Cube Tube is overall minimalist. The stark white interior gives the structure an appeal that is both sterile and pristine.

The Cube Tube is home to office spaces and a restaurant.
