Marc Kushner on Ark Nova in Matsushima, Japan from TED Ideas on Vimeo.

Designed by Arata Isozaki and Anish Kapoor, this inflatable and mobile concert hall is made of a stretchy plastic membrane that brings both art and hope to earthquake-devastated Japan. The 500-seat venue can inflate in under two hours and, when deflated, can move to a new location on the back of a truck. Marc Kushner, author of “The Future of Architecture in 100 Buildings,” takes us on a virtual tour of the building.
