Whatever you want to call it!
It would make for a very pretty and fun scrappy quilt to do!

When you look at it and break it down into the how to .... I see 60 triangles with borders on 2 sides .... then all joined together in the same fashion as you would for assembling a OBW

It's called Hollow Cube by Marci Baker.

looks like a hollow cube block, with a bit different color placements.

Fons and Porter have a show where they make it and call it a Smoothing Iron Block:Sew Many Quilts | 400 Series | Episode 404 It's an old block so the name may be changed as most vintage block names are to use in modern patterns.

Whatever it turns out to be, I sure do like the 3 D effect it has.
