This is exciting! It was reported yesterday that renowned Japanese architect Arata Isozaki will team up with British-Indian sculptor Anish Kapoor to create a mobile concert hall that will tour the affected areas of Tohoku, delivering hope and encouragement in the form of music. Characterized by an inflatable red shell-shaped structure, Ark Nova will hold up to 700 people at a time.
Although participating musicians have yet to be announced, the project has already secured Yasuhisa Toyota as the acoustician. Ark Nova plans to begin touring next summer.
