Winter Cathedral

Created by Mandylights
Plant Family Collection North

This immersive, welcoming tunnel of warm light is a visitor favorite. Inspired by arched church windows and appearing at first to be a single solid shape, the 80-foot-long Winter Cathedral is illuminated by tens of thousands of LED light globes.

Mandylights is a multidisciplinary production and design house with offices in the UK and Australia. Since 2006, they have created concert, broadcast theater, and light artwork experiences in over 50 countries.
