Harpa Concert Hall by Henning Larson Architects

Winner of the 2013 Mies Van Der Rohe Award, the Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre is located in Reykjavik, Iceland; designed by Copenhagen-based practice Henning Larsen Architects.

Situated between the land and sea, the monumental, sculpture like modern building reflects the sky and harbour of the surrounding city life.

The centre offers an arrival and foyer area at front, an administration and a backstage area with four halls running through the middle, a changing room, rehearsal hall and offices at the rear of the building.

The three main halls are placed in sequence of each other with public access on the south side and backstage access from the north.

A multifunctional hall with room for more intimate shows and banquets is situated in the fourth floor.

Façade of the building was designed in collaboration with Batteríið and Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson, along with engineering companies Rambøll and art engineering GmbH from Germany.
