Thank you!
"The construction of the beautiful freestanding, sculptural tripartite Opera House was one of the longest contractual sagas of the century. Sadly, architect Jorn Utzon became the scapegoat of a scandalous political affair and in 1966 withdrew from his project. Sitting on Bennelong Point, virtually in the Harbour and overlooked by the great Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Opera House is completely exposed, as three-dimensional as the orange segments its forms are based on. It is all roofs with an imposing base. These were made possible by Ove Arup. Originally the winner of an international open competition in 1957, it was a scheme that broke most of the rules. It was finally completed in August 1973 by other hands under the direction of Peter Hall."

— Dennis Sharp. Twentieth Century Architecture: a Visual History.

  • johndemi johndemi Another great presentation,this time our Sydney Opera house.In 1960 it was getting expensive so the NSW government introduced a lottery to help pay for it.The tenth lottery which the price was £100,000 was won by a Bazil Thorpe ,in them days there was no privacy and the media mentioned his name.A few days later someone kidnapped his son Graeme and murdered him.This is probably the most known murder in Sydney's history.
    BTW,we're very proud of our opera House and I'm glad you got to see it which in turn all your viewers will see it as well.
    Thank you for sharing.
