If Eyjafjallajökull volcano and Björk sound familiar to you, probably you know something about the amazing Iceland. So for today’s AD Round Up we have our first selection dedicated to this secluded country architecture. In the main image is Snaefellsstofa Visitor Center by ARKÍS architects. Check out the interesting Geothermal Pump Stations designed by PK Arkitektar or the Hof Residence by Studio Granda, a house located in Skagafjörður fjord, less than 100km from the Arctic Circle. Look again at Superstring, a proposal for a new type of structure for the high-voltage electric transmission in Iceland from korean architect Yong ho Shin. Finally revisit the impressive Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre by Henning Larsen Architects & Batteriid Architects.
