The nightclub as avant-garde architecture: from Studio 54 to the Double Club

Nightclubs and discothèques are hotbeds of contemporary culture. Since the 20th century, they have been centers of the avant-garde that question the established codes of social life and experiment with different realities, merging interior and furniture design, graphics and art with sound, light, fashion and special effects to create a modern Gesamtkunstwerk.

Night Fever: Designing Club Culture 1960–Today is the first book to examine the design history of the nightclub, with examples ranging from the Italian clubs of the 1960s created by members of the Radical Design group and the legendary Studio 54 where Andy Warhol was a regular; to the Palladium in New York designed by Arata Isozaki and the more recent concepts by architecture firm OMA for a new Ministry of Sound in London.

Featuring film stills and vintage photographs, posters, flyers and fashion, Night Fever takes the reader on a fascinating journey through a world of glamour, subculture and the search for the night that never ends.
