It is a fact that originality sparks are lit daily in the music industry. In today’s post we would like to present Ark Nova, a project that combines an unusual architecture approach with the desire to bring music to communities that were affected by the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami in Japan. According to its developers, the Ark Nova is the world’s first mobile inflatable concert hall. It measures 98 feet by 118 feet and features a rounded, organic design by British sculptor Anish Kapoor and Japanese architect Arata Isozaki.

Officially unveiled at the Lucerne Festival Ark Nova 2013 in Matsushima on September 27, 2013, the unconventional concert hall takes about two hours to inflate and can accommodate up to five hundred people. The benches inside the giant balloon-like complex were built by volunteers, who used wood from tsunami-damaged cedar trees at Zuiganji Temple in Matsushima. Designer Anish Kapoor stated: “The structure defines a space for community and for music in which colour and form enclose. I hope that the devastation can be overcome by creativity. Music can give solace and bring community together and in so doing can help us to see we are not alone”.

These days, a building doesnt just have to look good, it should ideally be good for the environment too. A great example of sustainability spliced with style from the past few years is the M&S store at Cheshire Oaks Retail Park in Ellesmere Port, designed by Aukett Fitzroy Robinson.

Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts
