 Started as an entry for ‘International competition for a national opera house at Bennelong Point, Sydney, Jørn Utzon’s design was announced as the winner on January 29, 1957. His “sails” inspiration came from his background and early exposure to shipbuilding.

Sydney Opera House, a modern architecture built from 1957 to 1973, received praises internationally and became the icon of Sydney. Its famous “shell” took eight years to construct while the special ceramic tiles used took over 3 years to develop. Because of its architectural significance, the Sydney Opera House was included in the National Heritage List in 2005 under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 and on the State Heritage Register of New South Wales in 2003 under the Heritage Act 1977.
