When you have your foreign friends come over to Iceland, it's an opportunity to go and enjoy the things Iceland has to offer, and the things we basically take for granted sometimes.
Harpan is one of those places. It's a stunning concert/conference hall in Reykjavík's down town area. Reykjavík's pride and joy that costed us a more than we're willing to admit. Was it worth it? You be the judge.
Situated on the border between land and sea, Harpan stands out as a large, radiant sculpture reflecting both sky and harbour space as well as the vibrant life of the city. It was designed by the Danish firm Henning Larsen Architects in co-operation with Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson. The structure consists of a steel framework clad with geometric shaped glass panels of different colors.
