The designer Atelier 8000 was most probably inspired by a cube rolling down the mountain.

Atelier 8000 explains:

“Thanks to the positioning of the construction, three sides of the facade are visible from any viewing point, which amplifies the play of light and shadows – the same effect which can be observed on the neighboring rocks. The glass surfaces of windows and photovoltaic panels along with the light transparency of the metal plating complete the whole picture of the site.”
