"The facade is supposed to resemble an iceberg floating freely in the ocean; the building having a sense of being undulated, expanding and contracting, as if shaped by its environment" says UUfie. The 3D pixels terraces invite you in and once you are inside, you realize bigger scaled pixels of these "boxes" become some of the display counters and fixtures.

At a glance, one may look at this space as being pretty complex but underneath it all, the materials and construction are super simple.
Designed for Moscow's International Biennale for Young Art, a Parisian architect Stphane Malka made this installation from thousands of different sized cardboard boxes glued together and painted them all a pristine pale grey. Light and shadow further creates a rich optical illusion to create depth and complexity to the space.
