The design of the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2002 by Toyo Ito and Cecil Balmond was based on an algorithm of a cube.
The Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2002 appeared to be an extremely complex random pattern that proved, upon careful examination, to derive from an algorithm of a cube that expanded as it rotated. The numerous triangles and trapezoids formed by this system of intersecting lines were clad to be either transparent or translucent, giving a sense of infinitely repeated motion.
