It all began in 1992. This year Architects of Air is celebrating its 30 YEARS of designing, building and touring the wonderful luminaria. What an enchanting journey!

Since 1992 the luminaria have shown their broad cross-cultural appeal by visiting more than 40 countries across 5 continents. Many events are in discussion for 2023 but will not appear on the schedule below until they are confirmed. Do not hesitate to return to this page to check for the recently confirmed events. 

"Ixilum had a great response from the press and an excellent reaction from a Sao Paulo public that ranged from bankers to street kids."  Stephen Rimmer, British Council, Brazil
