Escher's Opera

When you go on a journey to Iceland, you go for the landscapes, right? That's what I thought, and it is generally true, but there's more to this wonderful country than just the scenery. On the last day of my trip I had several hours to kill in Reykjavik between returning a rental car and my flight out. The weather was bad and I was tired, so I had to find something indoors. That's when I remembered I've never been inside Harpa, the Reykjavik's concert hall and conference center.

It may not be as stunning as Tokyo International Forum Building, but still is a very interesting structure. The entry is free and I've seen a tour group or two zipping through, without taking the time to actually explore this brilliant piece of architecture. Shame on them.
