    Well... having one wall in level doesn't mean the whole pano is. If you look at the northern wall, you can clearly see that the whole wall goes upwards, including the doors. That would be the first time I've seen doors that are not in level. So maybe I'm blind, or the architect was stupid, or the pano is not in level. Your pick... Anyway, I don't want to be offensive or something, I'm just saying that it is a pity that such a nice pano is skewed.

    Tomas - the panama is level but the location and the building itself makes you do a double-take as there are stairs going in all directions, windows are at an angle and from the specific location lines go in all direction. You can see that it is level by looking "back" (if there is such a thing in a panorama) at the wall and checking the lines on that side, which is pretty much the only real reference you have in the panorama.

    More About Reykjavik

    A nature paradise complete with icecap, glaciers, geysers, volcanoes, and waterfalls, the climate is surprisingly mild (considering its northerly latitude) thanks to the Gulf Stream. Iceland boasts a modern infrastructure – in fact, it’s just over 300,000 residents enjoy what is one of the most developed and egalitarian societies on the planet, where most of the energy is provided by renewable sources and virtually all of the electricity is generated from hydropower and geothermal energy.
