Revenge of the Clones

They are huge, translucent and square!...
Modernist boxes are taking over the world with pure fury and no remorse. In Ireland Terry Pawson unleashed its complex of boxes in Ireland called VISUAL & the George Bernard Shaw Theatre (above image).

In 2007, Steven Holl created havoc of boxes over Kansas' landscape with its Nelson-Atkins Museum (above image).

And soon, the world will have a taste of David Chippefield's box architecture fierceness with its Kunsthaus in Switzerland (above image).
Who is to blame for these box architecture invasion? Probably Gigon Guyer who quietly released its box massing powers in Swtizerland with its Kirchner Museum in 1992. Who is next to show its box making abilities?.... Don't forget to make it glow at night!
