Harpa Concert Hall, Reykjavik: Facade & Interior

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.
