Photographer's Note

One of the most unconventional houses are the cube houses near the city centre. These houses were designed by architect Piet Blom in the 1984. He just tilted the conventional house 45 degrees. The cubes are tilted and sit on hexagon-shaped pole structures. The houses all rest on pilons, have windows, and are all attached one to the other. And perhaps the most amazing thing: people actually live in them! Since they were disturbed so often by curious passers-by, one owner decided to open a "show cube", which is furnished as a normal house. Once inside, you get an idea how it is possible that one can live in such a strangely shaped house. He actually makes a living out of being in charge of this show cube, and has acquired another cube to live without being disturbed. He can tell visitors how it is to live in a cube.
