Harpa Concert Hall, Reykjavík, Iceland.
Artist: Olafur EliassonArchitect: Henning Larsen  

The facade is based on the repetition of a steel and glass modular element that is theoretically repeatable ad infinitum. This stackable element, having the function of a space filler, is called a quasi-brick. Its twelve-sided geometry is based on five-fold symmetry inspired by the geometry of quasicrystals.
