Once complete, Harpa will take its place as the centerpiece of a greater urban redevelopment and revitalization initiative taking place on Reykjavík’s historic harbor and waterfront. The city hopes that the new hall will become a symbol of renewed dynamism that will energize and strengthen the capital with its mix of concerts, exhibition, conventions, public programs and receptions.
