  • Official opening of the New Concert Hall in Reykjavik, Iceland

    The recently opened harbour-side Reykjavik Concert Hall and Harpa Conference Centre sets new standards for architecture in Iceland. It was designed by Henning Larsen Architects in collaboration with Batteríið Architects, who chose Duravit ceramics – Starck 2, Starck 3, Duraplus and Architec – for the washroom facilities.
    The spectacular southern façade consisting of a three-dimensional steel and glass structure bears the handwriting of the Danish-Icelandic architect Olafur Eliasson and makes the building appear to change colour depending on the way sunlight hits it.
    Harpa Concert Hall und Conference Centre is part of the East Harbour urban development project, which is designed to rejuvenate the city’s eastern harbour area and connect it to the city centre. It will include shopping streets, hotels, residential buildings, educational facilities and a mix of industries.
