Sydney Opera House is a state, national and World Heritage-listed item described by UNESCO as ‘a masterpiece of human creative genius’. What is lesser known is that in designing the Opera House, Jorn Utzon was inspired by nature. Building on this legacy, the Opera House has an Environmental Sustainability Plan that aims improve resource efficiency, protect the environment and engage and inspire others about sustainability.
The purpose of the session is to give real life case studies of mathematics applied to sustainability and the design of the Opera House that teachers could use to help inspire the next generation of young people to learn mathematics and science.
Presented by Naomi Martin, Manager, Environmental Sustainability Sydney Opera House.
