• Building’s façade turned into a giant Rubik’s Cube by Javier Lloret

    When the Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture Ernő Rubik invented the Rubik’s Cube in 1974, little did he know that his mind-boggling brainchild would inspire life-sized building a few decades later. Spanish artist and designer Javier Lloret recently pulled the veil off one of the world’s most beautiful building façades, called the Puzzle Façade. Connected to a 3D printed Rubik’s Cube that passersby can try their hand at, the entire building’s façade changes color accordingly!

    The 3D printed cube connects to the building’s façade wirelessly, using Bluetooth. While the 3D cube is white in color, users can see their combinations put to play on the building’s façade. The façade of the Ars Electronica building in Linz, Austria, was used for the project with LED lighting used to its advantage.
