Walk Through a Kaleidoscope at Musikfest with Architects of Air
If you’re heading to Musikfest — or, heading back to Musikfest — this weekend, you might notice a big, inflatable structure. One that appears palatial in its stature, and looks like it would be fun to venture inside.
Katena Luminaria, the interactive spectacle located at the festival’s new Experienceplatz (just to the south of Plaza Tropical), is a creation from Architects of Air, a Nottingham, UK-based organization that creates inflatable luminaria for display at various events throughout the world.
This particular display, likened by many to “walking through a kaleidoscope,” is described as a “dazzling maze… where Islamic architecture, Archimedean solids and Gothic cathedrals meld into one.” Architects of Air is in Bethlehem for the duration of Musikfest, and guests can visit daily from 12-10 p.m. with final entry each night at 9:30 p.m. Admission is $5, and can only be paid in Musikfest food and beverage tickets.
In case you want a preview of what you can expect to see, our very own Lisa Robinson took a journey inside.
