Simple Perfection of the Cube Architecture

Among the vast variety of forms in architecture, simple geometric shapes have always occupied a special place due to the unique combination of features such as simplicity, rationality, and creativity. Cube, one of such simple yet very rich and bright architectural shapes, is featured in the following picture gallery at Cruzine, an online magazine devoted to all kinds of contemporary design. The use of cubic shapes in architecture serves for a number of functions, from ensuring durability of the structure and maximum efficiency of the space utilization to purely aesthetic functions, such as ensuring the necessary appearance of the building to harmonizing the entire building with the surrounding environment.

Examples of cube architecture, presented in this showcase, include interesting religious buildings, monumental corporate headquarters, dense cube architecture of urban areas, conceptual structures, and fresh modern architecture designs, where cubic shapes are used. This showcase is not intended for architects exclusively, though they may definitely evaluate architecture presented from the professional point of view. We’d rather invite all the fans of visual designs and graphical art to enjoy this cube architecture showcase and get some inspiration or simply aesthetic satisfaction from the attractive designs displayed.

With 30 years of life experience behind my shoulders, today I find myself focused mainly around two core values: my family (I am a happy husband and a proud father) and IT in its broadest meaning, including but not limited to hardware and software techniques and innovations. My special interest and true passion is photography. Here I am ready to put my signature under each word, once said by Dorothea Lange: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Being a part of Cruzine team, I enjoy instant process of learning as well as sharing my own experience in photography and IT with the readers of this digital magazine.
