Erik Nitsche: Cube Houses in the Netherlands
Artist: Erik Nitsche
The unusual and interesting houses pictured in this artwork are Cube Houses designed by architect Piet Blom. The houses are located in Drenthe, which is a province in the northeast of the Netherlands. Piet Blom was born in the capital city of Amsterdam in 1943. He belonged to the most important representatives of the new Dutch structuralism, and he later specialized in urbanism. Although the uniqueness of Blom's Cube Houses may make them appear to be the product of a personal whim or self-expression, the house are really an end result of the intellectual, social, and technical conditions of our modern times. This analytical, structural approach distinguishes the design of the 20th century from previous periods and from it stems the liberation of the modern designer from preconveived notions of styles or forms.
