Kubik illumes Berlin

modulorbeat develops open air-club at Berlin#s river Spree

Illuminated cubes, visual games, electronic beats: these are the three elements of Berlin’s new open air club Kubik which opened at the beginning of July. From quite a distance you can see the illuminated Kubik which is located at a factory ruin near the Berlin river Spree.

The installation is based on the so called concept ’big tanks’ invented by modulorbeat, a team of three young architects and urbanists in Münster: modulorbeat used dozens of conventional 1000-litre water tanks to create a temporary installation.

However, the intention was to design an installation that provides both the room with an architectural structure and the possibility to fill each tank with an illuminant (bulbs). On the one hand the 160 plastic water tanks illume for all the visitors, on the other hand they serve another purpose: At weekends when dusk is falling different VJs will use the room of the architectural structure and play with it visually by “programming“ the tanks due to a complex controlling and timing for which special control units (e-cue) were installed by the company Lightlife, Cologne. The electric bulbs inside the tanks are individually controllable and can be used just like an oversized low-tech screen.

The daily electronic music events are organized by BalestraBerlin who were able to invite top-class DJs from quite a few European metropolis. The Kubik outdoor club opens daily except on mondays. You will find Kubik at Köpenicker Straße 36 in Berlin-Kreuzberg.
