Overview of Harpa Concert Hall

Harpa Concert Hall inside

Internal space

The walls and ceilings of the building consist of glass panels of different colors, reflecting and refracting in which the external light creates a feeling of weightless space, changing the illumination depending on the time of day. The building has five floors, which house four concert halls decorated in the style of Icelandic natural phenomena: the crater of an extinct volcano, volcanic eruptions, the northern lights and a cold lagoon. There is also a restaurant, cafe, souvenir shops, boutiques and a bookstore that are ready to receive guests every day of the year.

The opening took place in 2011. In April 2013, the Harp Hall was awarded the European Union Prize in the field of contemporary art.
