Despite looking like one of M.C. Escher‘s impossible creations, Kubuswoning is actually just a very unusual housing block in the Netherlands. Meaning “Cube houses” in English, this Rotterdam landmark was designed by Piet Blom in the early 80s, and is contructed around the tradional cube shape that usually forms a house, but titled through 45 degrees and rested upon a hexagon-shaped pylon.
