Architecture: Inflatable Maze

Luminaria is an mystifying maze structure created by AOA. Made out of a specially produced plastic the inflatable maze takes around 4 hours to lay out, and 20 minutes to inflate. Interestingly only 4 different colours of plastic are used to create this incredibly colourful environment.
"Each luminarium is an original design. The principal difference between the different luminaria is found in the rendering of the domes and in the layout of the tunnels.

The domes are the large chambers rising up to 10 metres high that provide the focal points. The tunnels connect the domes and determine the journey the visitor will take. The luminaria also feature ‘pods’ - alcoves where people can sit and relax out of the way of the other visitors.

Each luminarium is a dazzling maze of winding paths and soaring domes where Islamic architecture, Archimedean solids and Gothic cathedrals meld into an inspiring monument to the beauty of light and colour."
