Inside The Hive

Uploaded: September 09, 2012 08:47:47


The Harpa Concert Hall & Conference Center in Reykjavik is a marvelous modern building with a fantastic curtain wall of glass on all sides; in some
places, the window wall resembles the hexagonal basalt columns found around Iceland. In others, you're reminded of beehives. Mixed throughout
the thousands of panes of glass are many color-coated ones, distinctly visible outside, and revealed inside by the colored light they admit.
