Iceland (13) – Harpa

Harpa is a concert hall/conference centre in Reykjavik.  Located along the marina, it was only a few short blocks from our hotel.  It was designed by the Danish firm Henning Larsen Architects and artist Olafur Eliasson.   The evening of our visit, a concert had just ended and we were able to view the centre in full operation.  Unfortunately, I was not able to gain access to the theatre.  It would have been nice to see what it would have looked like.
