Information

The main designers of the Harpa Reykjavík Concert Hall and Conference Centre are Danish architectural firm Henning Larsen Architects and Icelandic architectural firm Batteríið Architects.
Despite being so heavy hit by the crisis, Icelanders continued construction of the new music house Harpa in Reykjavik.
Copenhagen studio Henning Larsen Architects and Icelandic studio Batteriid Architects have completed a concert hall and conference centre in Reykjavík, Iceland, in collaboration with artist Olafur Eliasson.
This is one of those rare buildings that looks better in the flesh than those architectural drawings that usually raise people’s hopes far beyond reality. Its glittering façade seems to shift constantly in the light, and it changes in appearance with the seasons – how very Icelandic.
