In a new entry, ArchDaily’s architecture journal INTERIORS has provided a detailed breakdown of the performance architecture and, as you might expect, constructing such an ambitious platform was no easy task.
As INTERIORS explains:
“The design of the tour is broken down into two stage components, its Main Stage and Secondary Stage (or “Spaceship” Stage as it has been named by many). These stages feature an elaborate pulley and track system. The open web steel joists compose the elaborate framing system that attaches to the structure of each arena. The result is that people actually become part of the experience, taking the concept of a concert to another level. In this sense, audience members are singing, dancing and engaging with Kanye West. It is the first concert in recent memory that actively uses the crowd as part of the experience of the show.”
