DUS Architects and the Studio for Unsolicited Architecture offer shelter from the storm with their incredible pop-up Bucky Bar made entirely from umbrellas. Built from orange umbrellas in a very Buckminster-Fullery formation, the bar existed for one short evening, dispensing drinks and DJ downbeats.

Supposedly, a team of Rotterdamn architects built the bar from visitor’s umbrellas, but we seriously doubt any one city is THAT color-coordinated. Regardless, it looks like a full-out umbrella party ensued, ’cause the cops had to break up the 300-strong party at 2am. The whole thing was a celebration of the Architecture of Consequence exhibition at the Netherlands Architecture Institute (NAi). Hopefully not too many party-goers felt the Consequence of Bucky-Bar-ing the next morning.
