The interstellar bubble N36 created by an HII region and surrounded by a swept-up layer is an exceptional target to study triggered massive star formation. Combining infrared and radio data, N36 turns out to be a vigorous star forming region at a location where the Norma Galactic arm meets the Galactic bar. This makes it possible to investigate in spatial detail conditions of a molecular cloud affected by the presence of a large scale bar.
