Ruben

The Cube room

 

Ruben was raised by esoteric hippie parents under strict anti-authoritarian guidelines in the alternative Copenhagen, Christiania Allotment. When Ruben was two years old, they thought it best to send him to an anthroposophical kindergarten, where he was to learn to art of silk painting, beeswax candle dipping, eurythmics and self-evolution. But it was quite different. In 8th grade, at a charity concert in aid of the new, fully landscaped corner-less schoolhouse, broke down over the building's aesthetics. This was the first of an ongoing rebellion against the architecture of curved shapes. In this, he would break free of the constraining hippie world of his parents. Ruben moved into a state school and became a proponent of modernism.

After high school, he won a place at the Bauhaus University in Weimar. He often attended SpeedCube competitions to get by. His record for solving the  Rubiks Cube was 6.24 seconds. A world record! Out of challenges, Ruben turned to architecture. Inspired by the works of famous architect, Adolf Loos, a pioneer of modernism, he began, albeit with a modest echo of his own pamphlets with titles like "curves and crime" or "The truth is 90°". In brief, Ruben hated curves. Perhaps, why he failed to find many women attractive. In his "Cube Room" you can find work from all over the world, especially art with corners and colours that fill a void within him. Ruben is working on the realisation of a 1:10 model, designed by Loos', Chicago Tribune Tower, as a counterpoint; in his opinion, the architecture of the cityscape is particularly disfiguring.
