Marcos Zotes designs luminous pink P-Cube to bring light to Moscow park

A glowing pink cube in the heart of Moscow is providing passers by an immersive spot to take stock and look out at the city.

The P-Cube, designed by Spanish-Icelandic artist Marcos Zotes and his studio UNSTABLE, is a temporary installation commissioned by the city’s Polytechnic Museum to stand in VDNKh Park.

The skin of the 9m (29ft) high structure is clad in a semi-transparent layer of fabric covered with geometric patterns which change in appearance throughout the day, and glow luminous pinks and blues when night falls.

Visitors can walk through the cube via gates on each side, and two sets of staircases provide vertical access to a public viewing platform located inside the cube. Here, Zotes has designed an ever-changing physical and digital environment of light and shadows, accompanied by an ethereal electronic soundtrack created by Russian musician Pixelord.

The P-Cube is the latest in a series of temporary installations around the world using light and sound to wow visitors.

A David Rockwell-designed interactive light display illuminated New York’s Winter Garden Atrium throughout December with 650 twinkling LED cubic lanterns suspended in a canopy from the ceiling, while an illuminated playground in Montreal is currently allowing members of the public to ride 30 glowing, musical see-saws.
