Red Cube

Is it a cube? Or just a distorted installation stretched to give it an illusion of a cube?
The red cube is designed by Isamu Noguchi, and installed in 1968.

Either way, this iconic Red Cube, on 140 Broadway Manhattan balances itself quite well on one corner while another stretches upwards, rising to 24 feet. Designed by Isamu Noguchi, it was installed in 1968 and has been drawing curious crowds since.

Painted in red, its main feature is a cylindrical hole.

It’s made of steel and cast in aluminum. Painted in red, and balancing itself on one corner, its main feature is a cylindrical hole that runs upwards through the center, revealing the building that stands right behind it.

Suffice it to say it’s in some fine company, what with the likes of Bank of America and HSBC as its neighbors, not to forget the innumerable halal carts too.
