Harpa conference center

Harpa provides outstanding facilities in the centre of Reykjavik, Iceland. The building is the ideal venue for various concerts and musical events, international conferences, conventions with accompanying trade shows, as well as meetings.


Harpa’s façade is designed by renowned artist Olafur Eliasson, Henning Larsen Architects and Batteríið Architects. The design is based on a geometric principle, realized in two and three dimensions. Reminiscent of the crystallised basalt columns commonly found in Iceland, the southern facades create kaleidoscopic reflections of the city and the striking surrounding landscape.

Green conferences

Harpa complies with the highest Icelandic thermal performance standards. Its advanced insulation and air-tight construction make it one of the greenest conference centers in the world. These elements will play a key role in minimizing energy use for heating and cooling and therefore in reducing carbon emissions.
