I've just got back from 3 nights in iceland. Fantastic country, such a beautiful rural and urban landscape.

I did a photosynth of Harpa while I was there. One of the best buildings i've seen. Quality materials and design.

Here are some pics since last summer that I had forgotten about. The first three are from the Norðurljós (Northern Lights) hall which is a small multi-purpose hall where some band whose name I don't remember was playing at the time (this was on Reykjavík Culture Night in August). The big hall was closed when I got there unfortunately.







One looking through the facade.


All pics in full sizes available at my Wikimedia Commons uploads.

I find it a bit weird the award goes to this design.. it's ok, but i find it a bit too much and not so consequent all the time. I haven't seen it in real life yet so of course i cannot make a decent conclusion.

I do like the ideas of Olafur Eliasson and I find this a very positive element of the project..
Anyway it is nice the MiesVDRAward goes to Iceland this time :) congratulations
