A breathtaking world of radiant light and vibrant colors,

a mesmerizing labyrinth of winding paths and majestic domes,

an extraordinary summer-long spectacle in Pittsburgh's Cultural District...

Prepare to be completely immersed in a multi-sensory light, color, and sound experience as Architects of Air: Daedalum takes over Pittsburgh’s Cultural District this summer. This monumental, inflatable, walk-in sculpture known as a “luminarium,” half the size of a football field, transports guests into another world. Cavernous domes, enchanting tunnels, and captivating pods beckon guests of all ages to explore this artistic phenomenon.

Since 1992 more than three million visitors in over 40 countries across five continents have been welcomed into Architects of Air’s monumental luminaria, immersed in radiant color created by daylight shining through each luminarium’s fabric. This summer, Daedalum, one of several touring luminaria created by Architects of Air’s founder, designer, and artistic director Alan Parkinson, will welcome thousands of visitors—regional residents and out-of-town visitors alike.
