Where do architecture, sustainability, light and music converge? At Kubik, a very hip, greenly-designed nightclub currently located in Barcelona. Kubik is a temporary open-air installation linking architecture, light and music with a contemporary air of reclaimed material usage. A radically different nightclub, the space is open to the sky and besides the sea, the structure built from hundreds of reclaimed, stacked, and illuminated industrial tanks.
Founded and first installed in Berlin, Kubik now settles for the limited time of four months from June 13th until September 29th at the Fòrum Barcelona. Two-hundred seventy-five illuminated industrial tanks are piled one on top of each other, building a spectacular designed object of walls and columns. Inside Kubik, visitors experience illuminated cubes, whose light geometry constantly changes to the rhythm of music.
Kubik was launched for the first time in Berlin last summer, revitalizing an unused site of the city. In Barcelona, Kubik aims at enlivening a location for four months that the city still needs to fully embrace. This extraordinary concept of temporary architecture as a home for cultural activities was developed by Balestra Berlin in cooperation with Modulorbeat and LightLife.
