Tipping Cube

Imagine balancing on the peak of Pic-Saint-Loup in southern France, taking in views as far out as the Mediterranean. Architect Christophe Benichou has visualized this dream-like scenario with his Tipping Cube concept. Accessed by a set of stairs, the viewing platform is encased by a leaning boxed structure made from a perforated roof — providing a needed break from the sun — and a set of opaque sides that force your attention forward to a large opening. This setup creates a 360-degree panorama that stretches from the surrounding Montpellier mountains, out past the Cévennes, and to the sea ahead.
