Architecture in Rotterdam is famously some of the most creative and innovative to be found anywhere in Holland. Despite all the hard angles and straight lines, architect Piet Blom actually took inspiration from a forest of trees when designing these Dutch houses back in 1977. Each bright yellow cube is tilted on its side by 45 degrees and anchored to a hexagon-shaped pylon, representing a tree. The entrance to each three-level house lies inside the concrete “trunk” that contains a staircase. Although the cubes still function as private homes, there are options for curious travelers to tour their slanted interiors.
