About the Architects of Air

Founder, designer and artistic director of Nottingham-based Architects of Air, Alan Parkinson, first started experimenting with pneumatic sculptures in the 1980s and has since developed his own language of form in this plastic medium.

In 1992 he established Architects of Air to build and tour his luminarium designs which have made over 500 exhibitions in more than 43 countries.

From the Guggenheim in Spain to the Sydney Opera House in Australia, the monumental and interactive walk-in sculptures of Architects of Air, have astounded audiences across the globe.

About the Dodecalis Luminarium

Dodecalis is one of the Architects of Air’s most exciting touring structures yet, featuring a dazzling array of luminous lines illuminating the three Dodecadomes, an awe inspiring “tree” design, and a magnificent main dome with its asymmetry serving to disorientate the visitor, in a way that makes exploration more exciting – maximising intrigue and wonder.
