Architects of Air lighting up at Bunjil Place – City of Casey

Experience a sensory overload of colour, shapes and cavernous tunnels with Architects of Air’s inflatable walk-in installation Katena Luminarium, at Bunjil Place from 27 September – 6 October 2019.

Be transported to a world of resplendent light as Katena Luminarium takes you to a space which indulges all senses.

The installation’s main dome has been created with an intricate fine mesh which defines the shape, and over 200 colour highlights swirling upwards to a green finial.

Accessible for people with disabilities and suitable for all ages, City of Casey Mayor Cr Amanda Stapledon is encouraging everyone to experience this amazing installation.

“We are so excited to have Architects of Air’s Katena Luminarium installation at Bunjil Place. Visitors will be able to sit down, relax and take in the calming and energising effect of the ambient space,” she said.

“Be inspired, connect with your community and experience art with all your senses.”

Inspired by Gaudi’s design for Sagrada Familia using suspended chains, artistic director Alan Parkinson has drawn his inspiration from architectural and geometric structures such as gothic cathedrals and Islamic architecture designed by architect innovators Gaudi, Frei Otto and Buckminster Fuller.

“I design luminaria because I want to share my sense of wonder at the phenomenon of light. A luminarium provides the frame for an encounter with a light whose surprising and simple intensity cuts through conditioned perception,” he said.

Touring the world since 1992, Nottingham-based luminaria company Architects of Air have built 21 structures and produced over 600 exhibitions, from Bilbao’s Guggenheim Museum to the Sydney Opera House.
