As I was browsing through the images from the 2010 R'Kidtecture event I started to notice a re-occurring theme. Eight of the twenty playhouses were cubes! I found this intriguing. Why would so many architects and designers when given complete freedom to design choose the cube form? Coming from an architectural design background, I can not count the times I have heard "think outside the box." Is this a subconscious rebellion against that familiar saying? Regardless of where the inspiration for these playhouses came from they are each beautifully crafted boxes.
Why think outside the box when you can play inside one?
