Amococo is the most labyrinthine luminarium, featuring as it does 86 triaxial domes and 71 pods that together create a complex of pathways where the visitors may happily lose themselves.
Built in 2008, Amococo’s common visual motif is the ‘oculus’ – an ovoid window that allows light to gently diffuse into the domes. This is most strikingly effective in the cupola of the central dome where the ceiling resonates with iridescent rainbow hues.
Amococo is the luminarium with the potential to be set up in a very long narrow configuration approaching 80 metres in length.
“Amococo is a really immersive, inspiring, spiritual and accessible space – transformative for audiences. A great way to engage a diverse range of local communities as well as attracting the passing tourists.”
