Conveying vibrancy and energy of CUBE

CUBE Education and Self Study Centre at Tilburg University will soon welcome new students for the second academic year since opening in 2018. To mark the occasion, the project has been reinterpreted through a publication by KAAN Architecten.

With its regular A4 size and wide central stitch binding, reminiscent of a typical school notebook, the publication was designed as a nod to the building’s programme.

The vitality of a university centre is conveyed using an energetic colour for both the cover and inside diagrams. The central spread of the book mimics the vibrancy of the study plaza as the heart of CUBE. Meanwhile, the elegance and robustness of the building is evoked by the clarity of the layout and supporting graphics.

The book features an original text by Kees Kaan, published both in English and in Dutch, while photographs by Simone Bossi and Sebastian van Damme capture the symbiotic atmosphere of the building and its users.
