ARCHITECTS OF AIR



A few months back Architects of Air came to Houston and set up in Discovery Green.   It's basically a huge grounded air balloon called a luminaria that has different rooms/sections that are each lit up with a different color or colors.  The luminaria is made of pieces of PVC that is glued together by hand.  They try to make a new luminaria every year which has a life of 300 exhibit days, which then it is cut up and recycled.


We waited in line for about 2 hours to go inside.  2 HOURS!  Reason is because they let a certain number of people go in at one time and they want to make sure you get enough time to get the full experience.  But it was totally worth it.  They made us take off our shoes before going and there were also pods where you can lay or sit down to take it all in. It was pretty amazing. Also we were the last group so we got to stay inside till the very end.....
