Harpa, glowing in the light of the setting sun

I have heard the Harpa concert hall and conference centre called "the world's largest piece of glass art". The glittering facade was designed by artist Ólafur Elíasson. Here it is seen bathed in the golden rays of the setting sun, across the building area.

There is still a huge pit beside the building and various uses have been suggested for the area, from a parking garage to a hotel to a public park.
