Gulbenkian is inviting University of Kent staff to join them on Friday 23 August for a special preview event before bOing! International Family Festival 2019 on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 August.
From 17.00-18.00 on Friday 23 August, Gulbenkian will be running FREE entry for University of Kent staff to Daedalum Luminarium, located on the field between Eliot and Rutherford, on a first-come first-served basis, subject to availability.
Daedalum is a brand new luminarium, launched this year, with bOing! as one of its first outings. It features 19 egg-shaped domes as a central maze. Passing through the maze the visitor can discover two original features – an incredibly intricate rainbow-coloured tree and a cavernous dome on whose lofty ceiling is inspired by the Pantheon of Rome.
From the Guggenheim in Spain to the Sydney Opera House in Australia, the monumental and interactive walk-in sculptures – Luminariums – of Architects of Air and designer Alan Parkinson have astounded audiences across the globe. Enter a dazzling maze of winding paths and soaring domes where Islamic architecture and Gothic cathedrals meld into an inspiring monument to the beauty of light and colour and where visitors of all ages can happily lose themselves.
