Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Center in Reykjavik, Iceland was only half finished when the financial crisis hit in 2008. The crash brought all construction to a halt, threatening to make the facility a gigantic symbol of Iceland’s economic collapse. In early 2009, the Icelandic government and the City of Reykjavik made the courageous decision to complete the project. Since opening its doors in May 2011, Harpa has received millions of visitors and hosted performers from across the globe. Stunning by day, Harpa is magnificent at night, as the windows change color and reflect in the pools that surround the building. Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Center has been named one of the ten best concert halls of the new millennium and a recent article in Financial Times said it has become a symbol of Iceland’s stunning economic recovery.
