Situated in a solitary spot, with a clear view of the enormous sea and the mountains surrounding Reykjavik, Harpa stands out like a large, radiant sculpture reflecting both sky and harbor space as well as the vibrant life of the city. The plaza in front of the Concert Hall is designed to generate a unique atmosphere where the dark base, referring to the black Icelandic sand, emphasizes the play of light and colors in the facades. The water pools mirror the facades and provide the plaza with a well-defined expression. Approaching the harbor from the city, the Concert Hall rises from the black base of the front plaza.
