Chill out zones are enjoying something of a revival at the moment, along with all architectural things one vaguely associates with the 1960’s. so it comes as no surprise to find the sixth “luminarium” by the outfit collectively know as Architects of Air at the very heart of the Edinburgh Festival. This latest inflatable structure – 128ft long by 107ft wide, rising to 26ft at its highest point, its glowing interior colours generated by nothing more complicated than daylight. Off course inflatable structures can be incredibly useful in disaster situations, and any time when someone needs shelter that can be erected in a matter of minutes. Most are made of high-strength textiles that can withstand a variety of outdoor weather conditions. And of course the playful appeal of inflatable structures can’t be denied.
