As I walk around Harpa, the light changes and changes color on the glass. Like an optical illusion, you can’t tell if the facade is 2D or 3D until you’re closer.
I love how a handful of windows are different colors and stand out from the crowd.
Harpa Concert Hall in Reykjavik is a beautiful structure and one of my favorite contemporary buildings I have visited.
Like the Hallsmarkirka church, Harpa takes design inspiration from Iceland’s natural surroundings. Up close, Harpa’s facade resembles a jagged cliff.
Inside Harpa, the sensation of optical illusion intensifies as new forms appear as light and dark clash.
Next to Harpa, there are examples of rock balancing with a beautiful backdrop of Iceland’s mountains.
