U-Bahnhof by Pfarre Lighting Design is an interactive art installation built in the heart of the HafenCity-Universitat subway station in Hamburg, Germany. Designed as a travelling light show, this eye-catching structure defies tradition and makes waiting for a train fun.
U-Bahnhof by Pfarre Lighting Design is made from twelve rectangular light boxes that resemble large shipping containers found in the city's harbor. Lined with colorful LED lights, the illuminated elements are more reminiscent of a nightclub interior rather than a traditional transit stop.
Adding both color and light to a bleak and austere subway station stop, this interactive art installation changes according to weather conditions, time of day and train departure schedules, making it clever and functional for travelers.
