Harpa - Reykjavik Concert and Conference Centre

In Harpa the air curtains are invisible to the eye but noticeable for humans through the comfortable indoor climate.

Situated in the old harbour between Reykjavík city centre and the North Atlantic, the new Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre will stand out as a unique landmark in continuous interplay with its surroundings. The design was influenced by Iceland‘s exceptional and dramatic nature. Situated on the boundary between land and sea, the building is a gleaming sculpture reflecting both sky and harbour, as well as the vibrant life of the city. The glass facade, which covers the entire building, was designed by renowned visual artist Olafur Eliasson in collaboration with the architects of the building which are Henning Larsen Architects in Copenhagen, Denmark and Batteríið Architects in Iceland. Special artistic adviser for the project was Mr. Vladimir Ashkenazy.

Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre has four halls, the largest one accommodating up to 1,800 seated patrons. Smaller meeting rooms are located throughout the building and a spacious exhibition area is nearby. The Concert Hall and Conference Centre also offers state-of–the-art equipment suited to ultra-modern facilities, in addition to catering services and parking spaces. Throughout the design process, emphasis was placed on making the centre ideal for hosting large events, as well as segregating the conference areas. This makes it possible to host events simultaneously without disruption.
