Completed in 2011, “Harpa’s glass façade is designed by renowned artist Olafur Eliasson, in cooperation with Henning Larsen Architects. The design is based on a geometric principle, realised in two and three dimensions. Reminiscent of the crystallised basalt columns commonly found in Iceland, the southern facades create kaleidoscopic reflections of the city and the striking surrounding landscape.” (via)
I was sitting at home on a May evening (around 10:30 or 11pm). It had been rainy and gray all day, but I stepped outside just in time to see the clouds pull back for a magnificent northern summer sunset. I threw my coat on over my pajamas and ran out with my camera to take advantage of the gorgeous light.
