Transcript of Sydney Opera House

Unesco Heritage Site Chosen: Sydney Opera House
Location: New South Wales, Australia
Year of Inscription: 2007 Reason(s) for being a Unesco Heritage Site: i) To represent a masterpiece of human creative genius. The Sydney Opera House I think that the Sydney Opera House fits under category (i) because the architecture is so unique, and original. Jørn Utzon (the architect) based the designs off of a sphere. There are 14 different "shells" that the Opera House is made out of, and if you pieced them all together they would make a sphere! WHERE IS THE SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE?

What should you do when at the Sydney Opera House? There is another tour available, called "Operas and Koalas" where you get to see all the backstage things at the opera house but then after you get to go on an Australian Safari! The Sydney Opera House is an architectural wonder, so the things that should be protected and conserved about it are architectural things. (from http://www.environment.gov.au/epbc/assessments/bilateral/pubs/soh-conservationplan.pdf) Things that should be conserved include:

the character and quality of the building- The Sydney Opera House is so unique and we should keep its uniqueness in good condition.
The integrity of the original structural systems- We should make sure it the building is structurally sound and able to be used for years to come.
Provide an approach to the conservation of deteriorating fabric- The Sydney Opera House has many curtains for their shows and the fabric needs to be treated so that it does not fray. Did you know...there was a design competition for the opera house to ensure the best design was made for the opera house.
Did you know...the original estimated cost of construction was $7 million US but the final cost was approximately $102 million!! the opera house in its construction stage Jørn Utzon was the eventual winner of this contest and his design is the one you see today!
