Designed by sculptor Anish Kapoor and architect Arata Isozaki, created in response to Japan's 2011 earthquake and tsunami to be portable and quick to set up, Ark Nova is a 60-foot-tall eggplant-colored structure "[whose] ceiling and walls are simply a PVC-coated polyester membrane that is held aloft by air from giant fans."
