Amazing Architects of Air


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, an illuminated inflatable structure that contains a brilliant maze of tunnels and soaring domes bathed in dazzling light and color.

Architects of Air covers nearly 11,000 square feet and is truly spectacular. This past week, it was open to the public in a park just down the street from my office building. My work teammates and I checked it out.




Daylight creates a vibrant luminosity that, after a while, made me feel as if I, too, were glowing neon. Looking up at the spiderweb light patterns on the towering domes was a dizzying experience. Literally. I felt like tall prairie grass waving in a stiff wind.




Entering this red tunnel, I was transported into a body part on an episode of "House." Not literally.




The weather has been blazing hot the past several days and this structure is powered by daylight. We were so relieved to find that it was air conditioned!





Magical mazes, searing color, puffy pillars and pods. Amazing Architects of Air.

Make it a great day!
