NOW CLOSED: Architects of Air


Architects of Air 

Britain's Architects of Air is a one-of-a-kind artistic experience in which people move through monumental inflatable structures designed to generate a sense of wonder at the beauty of light and colour. Discovery Green®  has now welcomed two different luminariums to the park, bringing tens of thousands of people to the park to experience this art form. The park is proud to host internationally acclaimed art forms and thanks the generous funding support from the Kinder Foundation that made this exhibit possible. 

The first luminarium to visit the park in April 2013 to commemorate Discovery Green's fifth birthday was Exxopolis. Inspired by the circular space of the Chapter House of Southwell Minster, Exxopolis featured large windows with small pieces of colored plastic to create a "stained-glass" effect. 

In spring 2014, we welcomed Miracoco, a stunning new luminarium inspired by the Lotus Temple in India. Rising almost 30 feet in the air and occupying half a football field, Miracoco was a dazzling maze of winding paths and soaring domes.

Special thanks to the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance; The Sam Houston Hotel, the official hotel partner for Architects of Air; and our media partners: KPRC, Houston Chronicle, Comcast, Univision 45, Mix 96-5, Houston Public Media and Houston on the Cheap.
