Olafur Eliasson – Architecture – Glass facade on Harpa



SME is a baby boomer – Harvey it's like Lampa some go for years on design and so on a civic laser and synapses which the some place some data people to fasten the sequencer to provide quick so the demo secondly see it lamp and there are also is we assume skill to but then every could leave it on others whose identities can be held on claim stars or dudes by in a community every sport all form a hospital where met a little concert whoopsy right they did a hell on the episode or sale isn't it dear hoops Saturday yeah Emma Taylor spilled the photo editor home data guy melon at that facility cases Google of our in pergola or by color so add in a holy day and a CFSL to do nestle possible mystical as a girl so cool to sing confessor you know who that was it ignore the Barnes flow then II for false personal value where the diagonal Omega so I see as a at the I exceptional to the affordability fault furthermore some abideth alone that's all that I have a he hissed always finish the I declare code started to and it has been the process pretty much like doing a painting these like this class has the complementary color so when you have yellow you also have purple so this is a yellow glass it's yellow in the transmission but it is purple in the in the reflection you have to see this is a giant facade so the amount of color when there's quite a distance that can be a whole bus between this one and this one just to get a sense of the kind of the scale of things there is a principle which is worth mentioning that is when you have the colored glass which as a tendency will stand out I have typically put a kind of a low reflective next to it in order to give you a sense of it being a volume the North facade we have taken the South facade and simply cut it with a knife on an anchor and this is then what is what it looks like I have made sure that I have a story our organic story which I think still communicated we have chosen a place with it with the most impossible corner on the whole building which is this one here the challenge has been to solve how these two East and North facade meets because they don't have anything to do with each other besides being based on the same concept but geometrically so we have drawn every single corner by hand and every single joint is is a uniquely made one of the things that were concerned about when you have a project that sits on a site that's very close to traffic there's a lot of of sound energy that's either comes directly through the air or through the ground in terms of the facade one of our big concerns is making sure that that outer facade helps block some of the noise because otherwise the dangers that you have noise from the street passes through the facade and into the concert hall there's a really complex solution to making sure that that works for acoustic reasons it works for them aesthetically of course there's also climate weather issues we have the extreme climate in some ways that right give it presents in terms of rain that blow side Rebecca's we've had long conversations with with ivy about constructibility and weather proofing so it's it's been a it's been a complicated process but I think we're all satisfied that it's going to be it's going to be a good finished product you

  1. so ugly building! so cheap and dark. front of the house is only asphalt and dirty water.chewing gums all over…
    Inside so cheap done, only concrete walls and coloured steps….the Windows are so ugly and damaged, leaking throught them and getting rusty.
    This house has no face, the windowsare like being done in China, so badly painted.

    After few years the result will be that this house will be just scrap and rusty.

    Dark inside, no real art inside. Only black walls….

    I just do not like the way of many buildings in RVK, so cheap made…but always very well introduced as it is ICELAND…they always think all icelandic is the best in the world
