Inflatable Concert Hall

The world’s first inflatable concert hall in the disaster-hit northeastern coast town of Matsushima in Miyagi prefecture, Japan. British sculptor Anish Kapoor and Japanese architect Arata Isozaki created the unusual Ark Nova, a balloon made of a coated polyester material, which has been erected at a park in Matsushima for the concert hall. The first event will run from September 27 through October 14, including performances by the Sendai Philharmonic Orchestra and traditional Japanese kabuki theatre.
