Enter a world of wonder at The Helix this Summer! A luminarium is a dazzling maze of winding paths and soaring domes where natural forms, Islamic architecture, Archimedean solids and Gothic cathedrals meld into an inspiring mix of design and engineering.

The installation awakens all the senses, creating a sense of wonder and enchantment for all ages. Visitors are transported and immersed into an amazing world of light and subtle and saturated hues, for a unique sensory experience, and brings visual art in places where you wouldn’t expect it. It is a paradox that such a stimulating environment can simultaneously be so calming and comforting. Many people find a luminarium a place for rest or meditation.

Terceradix celebrates 30 years of Architects of Air with a luminarium designed to be brighter and more colourful than its predecessors. The name Terceradix signals that this luminarium commemorates the 30th anniversary of Architects of Air. “Tercera-” comes from the Spanish 'third' and “-dix” is the French 'ten'. It is pronounced ‘Tair-sair-a-diks’. Terceradix packs a lot of interest into a more compact space than earlier designs. The final design will allow a mixing of coloured light to create quite a variety of hues inside that have hitherto been unseen in a luminarium.
