Arboria the air and light sculpture at Fed Square

Arboria is a sculpture made of PVC and zips, held up only by air, and you can walk through it.  All light within the sculpture is natural light coming in from outside.  Arboria is designed to represent trees and branches.

Arboria is the creation of Architects of Air, a UK collective founded by Alan Parksinson in 1992.  According to their website, Architects of Air build a new “luminarium” every year, with each one taking 4-6 months to build – by hand – by a team of six people.

It feels a little strange walking through the sculpture at first, almost as though something is affecting your vision.  Feeling the padded PVC ground under your feet (you have take your shoes off) does feel oddly relaxing though, and you can relax in one of the little side “pods” off of the main walkways.

Arboria is living at Fed Square until January 28, 10am-8pm and is wheelchair accessible and child-friendly.  More info and ticket prices can be found here.
