The Harpa Reykjavik Concert + Congress Centre designed by Henning Larsen Architects is located in Reykjavik, Iceland. The glass prisms of the facades capture and reflect light, mirroring the time of day and the seasons like ‘a calendar of light’.Inspired by crystallised basalt columns commonly found in Iceland, the 12?sided southern facades create kaleidoscopic reflections of the city and waterfront. The complex geometry is constructed with 1000 steel / glass ‘quasibricks’. At night, interior light projects through the prism façade over the harbor and surrounding landscape.
The 28,000-sq-m building comprises four main halls and several meeting rooms. The three main halls are positioned next to each other on the second floor. The fourth hall is located on level 1, intended for more intimate shows and conferences. All halls are equipped with flexible acoustic elements to support a wide range of events. The main concert hall accommodates 1,800 guests. A spacious lobby is located on both 1st and 2nd levels, ideal for exhibitions, large banquets, and receptions.
