A world of colour and light
A luminarium is an inflatable sculpture that you enter to be moved to a sense of wonder at the beauty of light and colour.

Architects of Air bring their latest inflatable structure to the 2020 Adelaide Fringe Festival.

As you step inside the labyrinth, you'll discover tunnels, caverns and domes. It'll be like walking through a stained glass window - it's a living, breathing, futuristic air and light sculpture.

Barefoot or shoeless, you follow the map and move your way through the tunnels. Or, you can find a quiet spot and do a spot of semi-meditation to the specially composed immersive soundscape.

For the past 28 years, more than 3 million people have been in awe of the Architects of Air's incredible luminaria. The sculptures are inspired by nature and its many forms.

Architects of Air originally grew out of a theatre project for people with learning disabilities and inclusivity is central to its work. The sculpture is accessible to people with disabilities and wheelchair-users and access is welcomed to people of all ages, all abilities and all cultures.

"Every once in a while something comes along that is just so different and interesting, it's hard to put into words. That's how I felt about Architects of Air." Ann, visitor in Omaha, USA.

No two visits are the same. The Luminarium changes according to the light and weather outside.

Luminarium: Daedalum is open daily from 5pm–10pm (closed Mondays). Advanced booking is available for 30min sessions from 5.30pm–9.30pm via the Adelaide Fringe website.
