From the Guggenheim in Spain to the Sydney Opera House in Australia, the enormous, interactive sculptures of the UK's Architects of Air have astounded audiences across the globe.

Join Architects of Air exhibition manager James Stephenson for an in-depth discussion on the design, fabrication and installation process used by the renowned British company for its inflatable, walk-in sculptures. The company's Amococo luminarium is on exhibit at Palmer Field from June 23-June 25.

Making its Ann Arbor debut on Palmer Field near Top of the Park, the Ann Arbor Summer Festival presents the renowned company's biggest luminarium, Amococo, a walk-through inflatable sculpture featuring a dazzling 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. More information about the hours and location of this outdoor exhibit may be found on the Summer Festival website at annarborsummerfestival.org.
