Lækjargata Building Being Demolished

The building at Lækjargata 12, in central Reykjavík, is currently under demolition.

Originally built between the years 1959-63, the building housed the old Iðnaðarbanki bank, and later Íslandsbanki bank in 1990.

The building’s design was criticised by a number of people, who felt that its dominating industrial look contradicted the older, modest look of central Reykjavík.

Photos of the building's current state can be viewed below.
