Living as an urban roof

Kubuswoningen by Piet Blom

The cube houses (Kubuswoningen) in Rotterdam were designed by Piet Blom in the late 70s, with the concept of 'living as an urban roof': high density housing with sufficient space on the ground level. An individual cube represents a tree and collectively they form a forest.
This video is what could be salvaged from a much more ambitious project. Unfortunately, when the filmmaker arrived in Rotterdam to make this documentary, he lost his camera and shot the resulting video entirely on his iPhone.
