Are we going to visit the Sydney Opera House in Australia?
Yes, we are. Let me tell you why. It is a multi-venue performing arts centre in Sydney, Australia and one of the 20th century’s most famous and distinctive buildings.
It was designed by Danish architect Jorn Utzon. It was formally opened on 20 October 1973 after a gestation beginning with Utzon’s 1957 selection as winner of an international design competition. The government of New South Wales, led by the premier. The government of New South Wales, led by the premier, Joseph Cahill, authorized work to begin in 1958 with Utzon directing construction. The government’s decision to build Utzon’s design is often overshadowed by circumstances that followed, including cost and scheduling overruns as well as the architect’s ultimate resignation.
