This stunning time lapse was taken by ReykjavikPhoto at the beginning of February during a solar storm, a beautiful interplay between artist Ólafur Elíasson's light sequence in the building's light facade and a natural phenomenon of lights in the winter sky. 

The realtime of the northern lights display was 1,5 hours and 1650 frames shot on a Canon Eos 6D and Tamron 24-70 VC. 

Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre, situated in the centre of Reykjavík, received the prestigious Mies Van der Rohe architectural award in 2014.
