What is a Kaleidoscape?

Based on the principles of three-dimensional geometry, Kaleidoscapes are visually stimulating environments that, using mirrors, create the impression of being inside a polyhedral space that is many times larger than the actual physical structure.

Person in Kaleidoscape This Kaleidoscape room in Oregon lets viewers immerse themselves in the reflected space.
These spaces create images of three-dimensional mandalas floating in mid-air, by using symmetries of the spherical rotation groups. There are seventeen different polyhedra that can be generated ranging from 4 to 120 faces. These various polyhedra demonstrate symmetries of the tetrahedral, octahedral and icosahedral rotation groups.

Kaleidoscapes are being used to make astonishing architectural environments.
