This layout is ideal for blog posts, portfolios or anything with frequently updated content.
It is an example of the current trend for so-called 'flat design'.
No drop shadows, no gradients, just block colours and elegant text.
But, of course, that doesn't mean that one can't break the grid!
This kind of layout can also incorporate elements of differing size, to allow room for large pieces of content.
"A square could easily be devoted to a blogroll or social media feed..."
...or even a survey!
