22-25 July 2021 Jodrell Bank Observatory

“Suddenly the world outside seemed to be forgotten, we had all been transported into a whole other world of light.”

From outer space to inner space, this incredible immersive experience invites you to enter a unique and new structure and be moved to a sense of wonder at the beauty of its light and colour.

Through labyrinthine tunnels and cavernous domes, visitors can explore a visually stunning environment of luminosity or simply relax and meditate in a world apart, drenched in radiant colour.

QODLUMIN

Qodlumin features 4 very individual domes;

Qodluminis is a combination of four stand-alone Luminidomes where each dome has its own very special character. The Hepta-Dome is a seven-sided structure inspired by the muqarnas domes of Islamic architecture. The intricate modeling of the ceiling is achieved by a net of fine reinforced webbing.

Mono-Chrome-Dome is the tallest, most imposing structure. It has a nine metre-high oculus casting a shaft of white light that is funneled down to the floor below. This dome was inspired by the chapel of Notre-Dame-du-Haut de Ronchamp, designed by Le Corbusier

Arborica has a canopy of spiraling blue lights supported by a colonnade and, at threecorners, by radiant trees. This dome is the most capacious capable of welcoming up to 120 visitors for special events.

The dodecahedron defines the form of the Neon Dodecadome with dazzling contour lines flowing over its surface. This structure, designed by Alan Parkinson’s son Meko, uses advanced computer design techniques to calculate a more fluid breakdown of the form into its compositional elements
