Cube is simply a way of studying form in architecture. It is an inspiration that will lead to new forms. It starts with taking an element or simply a detail of a building that I visit or study, and ultimately turning it to a building within the dimensions of a cube.
This cube is introduced as a three dimensional unit that provides a frame to shape the forms. This volume, which can be conceived at different scales, is considered an empty space with a set of constraints, and the goal is to fill this void with a new form inspired by a specific building.
The first building that I have designed is based on the Le Corbusier Pavilion in Zurich. Something that I found fascinating about this building was the amazing complexity that the roof of this structure had to it.
As a result, I studied this geometry and turned it to a form for my first a x a x a project:
