Exxpolis: a luminarium

Constructed by The Architects of Air, "each luminarium is 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." Wow:


Plus, each luminarium is different. This structure is currently on display at CSU Long Beach. Double wow:

The completed structure occupies half a football field and rises to the height of a 3-storey house. EXXOPOLIS took 6 months to build with 55 people contributing to the making. It used 3,000m2 of plastic in its construction in 9,000 individual pieces joined with 6 kilometres of seams.

A more comprehensive set of photos of the space can be found at one of my favorite blogs: notcot.
