the similarities of the pictures really speak for themselves...

Voxelation actually does seem to be the right word to describe the formal properties of the architecture in question.

Yesterday, voxelation entered the architectural lexicon in a definitive way. ...make a proper presentation at Quondam, particularly the reenactionary genealogy. ...add the OMA Hannover Hafen project where the voxelation occurs inside a stone shape (which always reminded me of those inside crystals). a few voxelation models.

from eikongraphia, where pixel should be changed to voxel:
Manhattan Bar Chart, by OMA

And in the Gakuen Tower shown in the 'Content' Exhibition
And in the entry for the Gazprom competition
And in the Beijing Books Building
That is at least 4 times. Will the next book by Rem be called 'Pixels'?
Actually, The New High: ODing on Voxels.*

OMA, Monaco Hotel, 2008.
Hey, everything can't be a voxel!

OMA, India Tower, 2008.
