Kijk-Kubus (Show-Cube), Rotterdam

(2.8/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
Designed to resemble an "urban forest" in which the top of each house represents a tree, Kijk-Kubus (Show-Cube) serves today as the display piece for one of Holland's most unorthodox buildings. The brainchild of architect Piet Blom, the housing unit was constructed in 1977 and has since become a recognizable landmark of modern Rotterdam. Visit the museum house and wander through the living quarters, spread out across three stories and complete with angled windows and oddly-shaped floor plans. Despite the unusual visual appearance within, the cube has many ordinary furnishings intended to demonstrate that life within could still be perfectly normal. You can easily access the houses by subway, as they sit above the Blaak station.
