"Cube Houses or Kubuswonigen" Cubic Houses (Kubus woningen) Tip by Mariajoy

  I think the Pole Dwellings are there somewhere
by Mariajoy

Designed by Piet Blom in 1984 these well known Rotterdam houses are a popular *must see* for visitors to the city. I would have loved to have seen them more clearly but the rain was blocking my view. They are "abstract trees" and the group of houses makes a "forest". They are also known as "Pole dwellings - Paal woningen" because the cubes sit on top of a pole which is also used for storage.

Oh really the website tells it all much better... I couldn't even see the damned things!

Cube Houses

I'm sure they look much better in the sunshine.
