Well that's a bit of a rip off as nice as it is.

The 'original' Cube - Birmingham

What rip-off?

There's many buildings that go by 'The Cube'. The scheme has only recently assumed that name, the project was previously referred to as Banyan Wharf or simply 17-21 Wenlock Road.

Look at the building itself, not so much the name. The name just compounded it. To call it The Cube when it's got the same internal/external asthetic design as The Cube in Birmingham is all very sheepish.

Just not very original.

I did, the aesthetic similarities are minor. Materially different, no crown, no central atrium, stacked exterior and so on. Very far from an architectural copy or a rip-off. Something that Make or the various British architectural journals would have picked-up on.

It's very similar concept SE9. Not trying to be an ass. Just saying there are huge similarities. Nobody would ever build an exact copy however there a massive resemblances and the name adds to that. That's all. I think it looks great however that doesn't deter from the fact it's a bit copy cat in certain ways. Not a bad thing. Just could've named it different. Especially as it's not really a cube!

The linked Dezeen article includes an explanation of its design.

The name 'cube' is fairly common, the White Cube at Hoxton Square is nearby.
