Port Weighting Station in Western Iceland – 6 Mar 2016

Harpa Iceland

Inspired by the geological basalt stone formations along the Icelandic coast, the south facade rises up 33 metres. The facade is made up of a breathtaking three-dimensional structure of steel and glass. On Saturday night, the facade lighting was revealed to the thousands of people present.

The remaining two-dimensional facades and roof build on the geometry of the south facade as a cut through the three-dimensional shape. The glass captures the light of the sun and colours of the sky and appears as a giant, illuminating sculpture, reflecting the sky and harbour and the vibrant city life. Made up of more than 12,000 m2 glass, the building changes colours depending on the weather and time of day and year.
