Apart from occasional project descriptions in journals and blogs, the story of the Danish architectural firm Cubo has not been told in a coherent presentation. According to the studio’s own statement, its architectural production is not intended as landmark architecture. In many ways, the otherwise productive architects have flown ‘under the radar’. This book aims to remedy that. The portrait of Cubo takes a look inside the architects’ wheelhouse, based on a series of talks I had with the studio’s partners over a period of time. The primary focus of these conversations was to gain insight into the tacit knowledge that shapes their work but is rarely made explicit. To portray the formative background, the self-perception and the ethics, all shaped by experience, and to offer a glimpse into some of the internal discussions underlying the studio’s work.
