SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE |ICONIC BUILDING |20TH CENTURY |TRAVEL & EVENTS 2021|AUSTRALIA
The Sydney Opera House is a multi-venue performing arts centre at Sydney Harbour located in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. It is one of the 20th century's most famous and distinctive buildings.
Designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon, but completed by an Australian architectural team headed up by Peter Hall, the building 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, Joseph Cahill, authorised 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. #cocopumarinaustralia #travel #trip #holiday #vacation #operahouse #sydneyoperahouse #australia #sydney #cocopumar
