a momentary vignette | a brief, beautiful glimpse of architecture, design, and art!


Sydney Opera House
September 19

Designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon, the Sydney Opera House is perhaps one of the most widely recognized buildings in the world. The complex, which contains a concert hall and several theaters, was the result of an international design competition held in 1956. Utzon's design featured a series of precast concrete shells that create a unique sail-like effect. Completed in 1973 following the resignation of Utzon during construction, the Opera House stands today as an elegant presence on the Sydney waterfront.
