MVRDV and the “Pixilated BuildingsTrend”

From Eliinbar’s Sketch book 2012 – the“Pixilated Buildings Trend”

It all started somewhere at  the 60th when the young Safdie designed the three-dimensional, prefabricated units community and housing complex built as a pavilion for Expo 67 the first significant Pixilated Building ever built….

Safdie did not work in a vacuum….

In the late 60th.architects like Kisho Kurokawa  designed the Nakagin Capsule Tower.

Recently I encountered in the WEB repeated examples of Pixilated Buildings

Is It a new trend?

Is Safdi’s pavilion for Expo 67, their inspiration source?

For you to judge….
