Sydney Opera House

 

The Sydney Opera House is a multi-venue performing arts centre in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. It was conceived and largely built by Danish architect Jørn Utzon, opening in 1973 after a long gestation that had begun with his competition-winning design in 1957. Joseph Cahill's New South Wales Government gave the go-ahead for work to begin in 1958.

 

The Sydney Opera House was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site on 28 June 2007. It is one of the 20th century's most distinctive buildings and one of the most famous performing arts centres in the world.

 

I have a couple more images of this icon which I will show next week. Have a good weekend!

Sure...it's pretty...for a boat, SAVO.

But...has a long way to go before it reaches the icon status of the dog on the lunch-box on the main road between Sydney and Melbourne.

Brilliant architecture and a suitable picture to match SAVO!
It must be one of the finest buildings of the 20th century
A wonderful picture of it Savo
I love your shot of this iconic building. I enjoyed visiting it myself a dozen years ago.
