Fireworks Blasting Chamber

posted: Friday, 21 June 2024

I'm a big fan of the work of Bompas & Parr and think over the years I've been to at least 8 of their 'events' over the years and so when an email came out offering the chance to enter the "world's first Architectural Blasting Chamber" I snapped up one of the limited tickets (a good job as they sold-out in minutes) without really understand what it was for...

Fast forward a few weeks and today I headed to their studios for something even more amazing than I expected - the experience of standing in a blasting chamber whilst some fireworks went off.

It was truly amazing and like standing in the worlds most exciting cloud.

The experience lasts less than a minute but you can see what it looked like from the outside here and the inside here
