Astrals and Aureols at Thinktank


Located in the heart of Birmingham, the Millenium Point building is England's largest Millenium project outside London. Occupying 45% of the space inside is Thinktank (pictured - photo courtesy of Lighting & Sound International) which incorporates many wonderful old machines including locomotives, World War 2 planes, steam engines and vintage cars.

Over the ascending floors, the various galleries tell stories of everyday life. The top floor is devoted to ideas and the possibilities afforded by future technologies. Every area has a scientific and educational theme, and all are highly interactive.

Astral Floods and Aureol Beamshapers have been used as part of the lighting design plan within this impressive postmodern architecture and exhibition space.
