The latest light room installation was created by Balestra Berlin [7] in conjunction with Festakt Eventagentur [8] and glows a jolly red that is in keeping with the season. 152 disused water tanks were positioned on a 1m high podium to create the illuminated room, which uses arches as its primary architectural form.

Two industrial containers placed at opposing ends of the podium hold the bars and DJ & VJ booths. Each container is wrapped with the recycled [4] water tanks that extend into a tunnel of archways, all separated by a symmetrical distance. The overhead structures give visitors a sense of being enveloped in a room underneath a glowing ceiling of square lights.

Like all Kubik [3]parties, this one is temporary, so if you’re in Austria, definitely swing by the Votivkirche to check it out. The last date to visit will be December 31, when the space will close with what we’re sure will be a killer New Years Eve bash.
