History and concert programme of Harpa Reykjavik
An impressive sight to behold, the Harpa concert hall in Reykjavik was built of steel and irregularly shaped glass to a design by artist Olafur Eliasson and Henning Larsen Architects. Harpa opened its doors for the first time in 2011 as part of the Austurhöfn development, a new centre of commerce in culture near Reykjavik's eastern harbour.
Harpa Reykjavik now plays host to national and international touring symphonies and classical artists, including the Berlin Philaharmonic and the Iceland Symphony Youth Orchestra. In addition, Harpa Reykjavik hosts master classes in the arts, making use of its ample conference space and additional rooms.
