Architects of Air: 25th Anniversary Structure
August 3, 6-11 PM | August 4-12, 1-11 PM
Last entry each night at 10:30 PM
Step into a world of wonder and experience Architects of Air’s new 25th Anniversary Structure, a monumental inflatable structure designed to generate a sense of awe at the beauty of light and color for all ages. This latest luminarium uses a rectilinear grid of quadraxial pods, each approaching five metres high. Four of these colorful eggs provide the base for an imposing tree structure, while ten more eggs are opaque silver where, looking upward, visitors may discover an inlaid geometric pattern of illuminated lines influenced by Islamic design. Admission to Architects of Air is $10 and $5 for children 12 and under, payable at the door in Musikfest Food & Beverage Tickets only. This experience is wheelchair accessible and inviting to guests of special needs.
