More About Miracoco

Built in 2011, Miracoco represents a new step in the evolution of luminarium design.  Taking the best from what we have learnt from earlier structures we’ve achieved greater control over the inflated form. Functionally this means improvements in safety and in modularity but, most importantly, this new luminarium promises to be one of the most visually exciting that we have built.
Miracoco closely resembles its sister structure Mirazozo in terms of the visitor’s journey and the disposition of its spaces. Its distinctive element is in the rendering of the domes. The dodecahedral domes follow a geometry made more precise by the increased use of reinforced restraints to define the structure.  The working of the illuminated seams enhances the sense of structure.

Miracoco’s Centre Dome is yet more voluminous than any previous dome we have built.  It is a monumental structure, redolent of the Lotus Temple of India, that features spiral lattices to create a display of scintillating points of light on a field of iridescent hues.
