“EXXOPOLIS is architects of air’s 20th luminarium, a cluster of monumental inflatable structures completely illuminated by natural light and until recently, created devoid of computers. the current inflatable is touring the united states, with the most recent technicolored installation at university of california santa barbara. while the wondrously colorful domes have evoked a sense of awe worldwide for the last 22 years, the most recent iteration of the ephemeral structures commemorates the original EGGOPOLIS, created in nottingham with help from volunteers and community service workers. 2 million visitors and 38 countries later, the architectural language has developed into a series of spaces richly informed by the complex geometries of the natural landscape and represents a evolution of the personal formal language of alan parkinson, the company’s founder.”
