Artist Discussion: The Creation of Amococo With Representatives From Architects of Air
Amococo is an enchanting luminarium maze of winding paths filled with radiant light and color. Linking 86 three-sided domes in a monumental labyrinth, designer Alan Parkinson creates an architectural marvel in which visitors are encouraged to wander, relax, meditate and enjoy the magical ambiance of Amococo. The exhibit will make its Ann Arbor debut on Palmer Field near Top of the Park during the Ann Arbor Summer Festival.
