From the Guggenheim in Spain to the Sydney Opera House in Australia, the monumental and interactive walk-in sculptures of Architects of Air, designed by Alan Parkinson, have astounded audiences across the globe. Architects of Air have toured the luminaria since 1992 and visited 43 countries. The luminarium offers a dazzling maze of winding paths and soaring domes where Islamic architecture, Archimedean solids, and Gothic cathedrals meld into an inspiring monument to the beauty of light and color, and where visitors can happily lose themselves. The installation awakens all the senses, creating a sense of wonder and enchantment for all ages.
Visitors are transported and immersed into an amazing world of light and subtle and saturated hues, for a unique sensory experience, and brings visual art to places where you wouldn’t expect it. It is a paradox that such a stimulating environment can simultaneously be so calming and comforting. Many people find a luminarium a place for rest or meditation.
A mix of engineering and design, the luminarium invites you to wander, lie down, sit and enjoy the ambiance of light and space.
Please note that there is a “no shoes” policy inside of the Luminarium. You will be asked to remove your shoes before entering.
A limited number of advance tickets are available online for Luminarium – Architects of Air. Walk-up tickets will be able for purchase at our box office in Ballantyne’s Backyard.
