Reykjavik, Iceland is getting a new concert hall. And it looks like Superman's Fortress of Solitude. Only... for music! The Harpa Concert Hall, modeled after Icelandic basalt crystals, is composed of thousands of glass scales, gleaming and colorful.

When night hits, it's set ablaze by an LED lighting system. It looks pretty stunning—just don't play baseball next to it. [Inhabitat]
