A pictorial homage to the amazing late modernist Sydney Opera House.
The sails of the regatta repeat the design of the building. The sensually curved roof echoes the Sydney Harbor Bridge. From Bennelong Point, you get the late modernist view of the Opera House. The son of a naval engineer, brought shipbuilding in the design in subtle ways. The arches in their simplicity emphasized Utzon's synthesis of form, material and function. Utzon compare his work to the growth patterns of nature, "a design can grow like a tree, he explained. “ If it grows naturally, the architecture will look after itself. " At the Sydney Harbor side, the familiar shell shape transforms into rising sea creatures.
