World’s first inflatable concert hall

The world’s first inflatable mobile concert hall designed to tour the northeastern areas of Japan devastated in the 2011 earthquake and tsunami will open soon. The world’s first inflatable concert hall is all set to debut, hosting a number of special events in northeastern island of Honshu Japan, the region devastated by 2011’s quáke and t§unámi.

The extraordinary purple and red structure, which can hold around 500 people, was the idea of Lucerne Festival’s artistic and executive director Michael Haefliger, who worked with British artist, sculptor Anish Kapoor and Japanese architect Arata Isozaki to make it a reality. Comprising a coated polyester material, Ark Nova, which is 18 meters high and 35 meters wide, can be quickly deflated, allowing for easy transportation to other locations.
