Sydney Opera House (Sydney, Australia)

Sydney Opera House: An Icon of the World

It is not just a symbol of Sydney. It’s not simply a major landmark in Australia. It is an icon of the world. This is the Sydney Opera House, a stunning architectural feat which is one of the most recognisable structures on the planet. Its design was a concept by Denmark’s Jørn Utzon, who won a 1956 international competition – and £5,000 – with his vision for the Opera House. Construction began a further three years later. Yet it took a further 14 years, in 1973, for all work on the structure to commence. Despite its rocky origins, the Opera House soon became the crown jewel of Sydney. This is evidenced by tourist numbers, with more than ten million people visiting the attraction every year.
