July School Holiday Activities: Katena - Architects of Air

Friday 12th of July to Sunday 14th of July
by Babycino Blogger (follow)
City of Stirling hosts one of the most popular school holiday events in Perth these July school holidays: Katena - Architects of Air. The free public event at Carine Open Space has welcomed big crowds, with some waiting over 3 hours to take a look inside the luminarium.



Katena Crowds
Katena - Architects of Air has drawn big crowds


A temporary immersive art installation, the KATENA luminarium is a maze of winding paths and inflatable domes that transport you into an amazing world of light, colour and sound. Master B (age 6) and Little Miss Sunshine (3) said it was like a giant bouncy castle! The sculpture is inspired by natural geometry and Islamic architecture, with the series of small domes designed to reflect the repetitive forms found in the bazaars of Iran.

Inside Katena - Architects of Air is a stunning spectacle of light and luminosity


The structure was built by hand from pieces of coloured plastic in the UK, and has travelled to more than 40 countries. Since 1992, more than 3 million visitors have explored this amazing community art installation. Only 80 people are allowed inside the structure at a time, and sessions are 20 minutes long once inside.

Our kids also enjoyed the Carine Open Space playground and climbing trees around the lake as we waited for our turn. The City of Stirling has also laid on circus activities and roving entertainers to occupy the crowds while you wait.

The Carine Open Space playground is popular with the kids


Katena - Architects of Air is at Carine Open Space until 14 July. Admission is free - tickets are sold out but a limited number of spaces are available for walk-ups.

Carine Open Space is on the corner of Beach Road and Okely Road in Carine.
