This WWII Submarine Base has been transformed into the Largest Center Digital Art

The company invested a whopping € 10 M to restore and convert and the old submarine base located in Bordeaux, France, became a large arts center called Bassins de Lumières which was five times bigger than the Atelier des Lumières located in Paris.

What is the best way to deal with an old and unused submarine base? Smash it? Turn it into a giant swimming pool? How about turning it into the largest center of digital art in the world? We know the second one might sound fun but swimming in water as deep as 16 m might be a little dangerous - that's why Culturespaces chose the third option.

Culturespaces transformed the old submarine base into the world's largest center of digital art

It takes a lot of time and work to completely transform an abandoned old building and the company has been actively restoring it since 2018.

"The digital exhibition will be perfectly adapted to the monumental architecture of the submarine base and will be reflected in the four large water basins, thus adding a new dimension to the immersive experience," writes Culturespaces. "Visits will be made in alleyways on the water and along the docks of large basins."

Culturespaces promise that lovers of traditional and contemporary art will be able to enjoy themselves. The four large tanks will project different exhibitions throughout the year, displaying exhibitions that have long been dedicated to great artists and art history, and shorter ones dedicated to contemporary works.

Back in March, Culturespaces launched a unique Van Gogh exhibition called Van Gogh, Starry Night

The new digital art center has a projected area of ​​14,500 m² and will open its doors with an exhibition by Austrian painter Gustav Klimt. This will be amazing.

Bassins de Lumières will open its doors on April 17th, 2020. Be there..
