A book cover for Architects Of Air, a Nottingham-based (UK) design studio that builds “luminaria”: nomadic and monumental inflatable structures designed to generate a sense of wonder at the beauty of light and colour through 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.
From, Hong Kong to Honolulu, Taipei to Tel Aviv, Sydney to Singapore, the monumental walk-in sculptures of Architects of Air have enchanted audiences around the world. Since 1992, over 2 million visitors in 43 countries across five continents have immersed themselves in this spectacular and luminous world.

The photos were taken in Pennabilli (Italy) on a dark and rainy day. Despite this, the light inside is extraordinarily suggestive (I didn’t use any flash or artificial light).
