As I move around Harpa, the light shifts and changes the colour on the glass. Like an optical illusion, you can’t tell if the facade is 2D or 3D until you’re nearer.
I love how a handful of windows are different colours and stand out from the crowd.
Harpa Concert Hall in Reykjavik is a beautiful structure and one of my favourite contemporary buildings I’ve visited.
Much like the Hallsmarkirka church, Harpa takes design inspiration from Iceland’s natural surroundings. Up close, the Harpa facade resembles a craggy cliff.
Inside Harpa, the optical illusion feeling intensifies as new shapes appear as light and dark clash.
Adjacent to Harpa, there are examples of rock balancing with a wonderful backdrop of the Icelandic mountains.
