Abstract: The examples of area minimizing singular cones of codimension one discovered by Bombieri, DeGiorgi and Guisti are generalized to arbitrary codimension, thus filling a dimensional gap. Previously the only nontrivial examples of singular area minimizing integral currents of codimension other than one were obtained from holomorphic varieties and hence of even codimension. Specifically, let S be the N-fold Cartesian product of p-dimensional spheres and C be the cone over S. We prove that for p sufficiently large, C is absolutely area minimizing. It follows from the technique used that C restricted to the ball of radius $ {N^{1/2}}$ is the unique solution to the oriented Plateau problem with boundary S.
