Ark Nova is a concert hall located in Japan, two years after a major earthquake and tsunami hit its coast. It is an air-inflated membrane structure which is equipped with the necessary stage and sound equipment. The design allows the entire structure to be dismantled and loaded (including the equipment) on to a truck. The interior of the structure has a single uninterrupted space and the walls of the structure are made from a stretchy plastic membrane, designed to enable quick erection and dismantling and can accommodate various events and functions such as:
• Music Concerts
• Arts Exhibitions
The space can accommodate 500 personnel. The brains behind the design are Arata Isozaki and Anish Kapoor. The designers termed the design ‘Ark Nova’ so that it will be recognized as a symbol of recovery immediately after the great earthquake disaster.
