I came across the recently opened Harpa Concert Hall in Reykjavik, Iceland and was stunned when I saw the first photos. It was created in collaboration between Henning Larsen Architects and artist Olafur Elliason, who together created an extremely beautiful structure. The facade is made up of hundreds of irregularly shaped pieces of glass, which definitely look like Elliason’s handiwork, and give the structure it’s signature style. Inside though, it’s equally as beautiful, as you can see above in the third photo. The deep red of the concert hall is stunning and it looks like a beautiful place to see a performance.

Hopefully one day I’ll be in Reykjavik to see it for myself.
