henning larsen | HARPA Concert Hall | Reykjavik
This building’s tour de force is its intricate facade, designed in collaboration with Olafur Eliason. It creates a cathedral-like quality of light that is enhanced by the low angle sun at Reykjavik’s latitude. As the centrepiece of Icelandic architecture, this building reflects successfully the ebullient, independent nature of Icelanders. You could feel how intensely the community embraced the building when it opened. This created a real sea of people amidst the architecture . . . my kind of shoot!
