Summer 2013 Photo Tour — Icelandic Summer Light » Gleaming Honeycomb, Reykjavik

Gleaming Honeycomb, Reykjavik

Gleaming Honeycomb, Reykjavik

Reykjavik has a beautiful new public building, the Harpa concert hall and conference center, just recently opened to the public. Positively glowing in the light, the lattice-work of clear, colored and mirrored glass panels that makes up the walls and ceiling forms a dizzying array of shapes and lines. But it does so in a very good way, like a classic Escher illustration in 3 dimensions. It looks a lot like a honeycomb structure, or the basalt column formations found all over Iceland. I passed several enjoyable hours at Harpa, and will go back again… perhaps even to hear a concert!
