Designed through a unique collaboration between the sculptor Anish Kapoor, the architect Arata Isozaki, and the Lucerne Festival Ark Nova, it is the first large scale inflatable concert hall ever built. Conceived over a year ago, the mobile structure will open to the public on October 14 and will host concerts, events and workshops in areas damaged by the tsunami in the country.
Made of a translucent purple membrane resembling a parachute, the organizational structure can be inflated in about two hours and can accommodate 500 people, and will be easy to transport around the region. In addition, the cedar wood damaging tsunami in Matsushima Zuiganji temple was reused to build seats and acoustic reflectors inside the room.
