WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

A luminarium is a sculpture people enter to be moved to a sense of wonder at the beauty of light and colour. Since 1992, over 2 million visitors in 37 countries across 5 continents have immersed themselves in the spectacular, luminous world of Architects of Air. Built in 2010, Mirazozo makes extensive use of an 'illuminated seam' feature where luminous seam lines create a scintillating lattice of light. The pattern of these neon-like strips induce the viewer's gaze to shift between different perceptions of the same view - an effect one encounters in the contemplative geometric surface design of Islamic art and architecture. Mirazozo's center dome is the largest open space structure that Architects of Air has built - one particularly suitable for hosting performances. Mirazozo was conceived to be very modular and to permit compact configurations.
