Inflatable Concert Hall

An amazing design for a great cause. Check out this amazing inflatable concert hall. ‘ark nova’, the world’s first inflatable concert hall, will soon tour areas of japan that were devastated in the 2011 earthquake and tsunami. designed by british sculptor anish kapoor and japanese architect arata isozaki, the mobile structure will host world-class concerts, workshops, and both traditional and contemporary performance as part of the lucern festival ark nova. the balloon-like architecture is stationed in matsushima city, which is still healing after being struck by the natural disaster, and the team behind its creation hopes to deliver encouragement and positivity in the form of music. the temporary structure holds about 500 people, whose luminescent purple walls create a billowing interior fitted with handcrafted benches and a stage.c1c2c4c3c5c6c7c8c9
