Every year, Monumenta invites an internationally renowned artist to transform their vision on the vast nave of the Grand Palais in Paris and create a new work specifically for this space. Monumenta is an artistic interaction on an unparalleled scale, filling 13 500 m2 and a height of 35 m. For its fourth incarnation, the French Ministry of Culture and Communication has invited Anish Kapoor, one of the greatest artists of his generation, to produce a new work for the monumental space of the Nine, of 11 have 23 June 2011. Thirty years after his first exhibition in Paris, Monumenta marks the return of Anish Kapoor in the French capital. It is considered one of the most important sculptors of our time. His work has profoundly expanded the scope of contemporary sculpture, as much by his mastery of monumental scale by the colorful sensuality and apparent simplicity emanating from his works. All this contributes to the fascination they hold for the general public, as evidenced, for example, the popular success of Cloud Gate in Chicago.

About Lucerne Festival Ark Nova
The Lucerne Festival Ark Nova was launched immediately after the great earthquake of the Lucerne Festival, Swiss International Music Festival. “ARK” as in “Noah’s Ark”, et NOVA, meaning “new”. In the famous legend of the Old Testament / Genesis, Noah bathes his family and animals on an ark, and after drainage, a rainbow sky form. In a nod to this story, we named the project "New Ark" Ark Nova with the hope that it will become a symbol of recovery immediately after the great earthquake disaster.
Ark Nova obviously cannot transport people and animals to escape the disaster, but we designed the ark to travel packed with music and various arts, from the point of view of long-term reconstruction of the culture and spirit. We also recalled a key concept that the Japanese folklorist Shinobu Orikuchi coined as "Marebito (sacred guests)». This is the concept that “marebito” foreign lands brought religions and festivals and has revitalized the company accordingly.
This could also be considered as the basis of existence of the arts. Ark Nova will visit all disaster areas as a "marebito" and generate activities focusing on each location, as it interacts with the locals. Although the project was born after the earthquake, we aim to develop a structure that can extend beyond reconstruction to create “ARK NOVA”, meaning “new arts”. Foreign lands brought religions and festivals and revitalized the company accordingly. This could also be considered as the basis of existence of the arts.

The concert hall Ark Nova created by Arata Isozaki and Anish Kapoor is an inflated membrane structure that is equipped with sound equipment and its equipment. The membrane can be folded and disassembled equipment and loaded onto a truck, in order to be taken at each site. The interior is a single, uninterrupted space, depending on the arrangement of the equipment, is a multi-story format that can accommodate various events orchestras to chamber music, jazz, the arts or exhibitions. It is expected to attend 500 during an orchestra performance, and it is expected to have a width of 30m, a length of 36m and a maximum height of 18m.

This bright bubble of a building is an inflatable concert hall called Ark Nova outcome of a collaborative effort between the architect Arata Isozaki and internationally acclaimed artist Anish Kapoor and financial support of UBS. This is a refreshing idea that was conceived by the Lucerne Festival and the Japanese agency Kajimoto to provide the impetus and inspiration to tsunami survivors in the Japanese region of Higashi-Nihon. The hall will host 500-700 spectators for a jazz program, of dance, classical music and multimedia art projects by well-known artists worldwide.
Amorphous and entertaining form of the concert hall develops from a long entrance tunnel, whose red elastic skin widens outwardly and upwardly. The interior is designed as a single open space with the scene of the orchestra at one end that opposes the seats and the lobby to the other. The shape folds on itself in two places, creating interesting columnar structures that punctuate space, which gives it dynamism and energy. Shell, which is essentially the building, can be inflated and deflated quickly and can be folded for easy transport to and from numerous locations planned.
Nicknamed Arc Nova, designed by Japanese architect Arata Isozaki and British sculptor of Indian origin Anish Kapoola, the mobile structure will traverse areas devastated by the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, hoping to offer some hope and encouragement to the disaster victims.
A tour is planned. The inaugural performance will take place on 12 October 2013 Matsushima, a coastal town in northeastern Japan devastated by the earthquake and tsunami 2011.
The project is a fascinating symbiosis between different arts and cultures, architecture, design, and that teaching music. Ark Nova was created with the support of the Lucerne Festival, and will host musical performances by international orchestras, and from traditional and Japanese folk concerts.
The inflatable architecture consists of a large purple membrane that can be rapidly inflated and deflated for easy transport. It takes 2 hours to inflate Arc Nova is able to accommodate up 700 people. The wooden benches were made during a workshop last August by volunteers who used the cedar wood from Zuiganji Temple of Matsushima damaged during the tsunami.
