Unicorns and cannonballs, palaces and piers, trumpets towers and tenements, wide oceans full of tears...
That's a very Art Deco style. And a good thing too, say I! Who designed the chosen model?
Bazza,Danish architect Jorn Utzon designed the Sydney Opera House as we know it now. (you can look him up in Wikipedia.)My main point is that the one that won the competition is timeless - ie not of a specific era, as were the two discarded designs I posted.Having said that, it's very interesting to imagine what could have stood in its place. I commute by train over the Harbour Bridge every day, and the Opera House is very much a fixture. What would it have been like with something else?I really like the two designs I posted. However, I'm not sure whether they would have left the lasting mark that the real Opera House has.
