Reykjavik’s Harpa Concert Hall, With Help From Olafur Eliasson
When we talked to artist Olafur Eliasson in the March/April 2011 issue of AFAR, he mentioned some work he was doing in Iceland. And on August 20 of last year, that work was inaugurated: The Harpa-Reykjavik Concert Hall and Conference Centre officially opened with the lighting of Eliasson’s amazing facade. Go for the facade, but stay for the events: the Iceland Airwaves festival starts October 31; last year’s lineup featured Bjork and Yoko Ono, among others. And the concert hall will be home to the Iceland Symphony Orchestra and the Icelandic Opera.
