/// Series of photos from the giant Mirazozo Luminarium, a giant sculptural installation that people enter to be moved to a sense of wonder at the beauty of light and color.
As described by the creators
“Built in 2010, Mirazozo makes extensive use of an ‘illuminated seam’ feature where luminous seam lines create a scintillating lattice of light.
The pattern of these neon-like strips induce the viewer’s gaze to shift between different perceptions of the same view – an effect one encounters in the contemplative geometric surface design of Islamic art and architecture.
Mirazozo’s center dome is the largest open space structure that Architects of Air has built – one particularly suitable for hosting performances. Mirazozo was conceived to be very modular and to permit compact configurations.”

Photo series from the famous Pavilion of Spain at the Expo of Shanghai in 2010, designed by Benedetta Tagliabue / EMBT.
// The pavilion was a steel structure covered with twisted wicker panels. The wicker covers were woven by Spanish handcrafters in different patterns and different colors of wicker. The panels finally were covered by a special waterproofing material. They were also contributing to the thermal comfort of the pavilion taking into account the local climate.

Photography of an installation created by Japanese artist Chiharu Shiota.
/// The installation, named ” In Silence”, was inspired by one of the artist’s personal traumatic memories as a child, having witnessed her neighbor’s house burning down. The pieces tangled up in black thread are echoing a sketch-like imagery and the burnt piano is in fact a direct memory of the artist, as it resembles her neighbor’s piano blazed up in smoke.
