VSW Sydney, 4, #notinktober


The Sydney Opera House.

Image for reference by Debi Taylor.
Started with a line drawing, as always.
This building is so complicated I cannot image trying it without guidelines.


Jørn Oberg Utzon, AC, Hon. FAIA (Danish: [ˈjɶɐ̯ˀn ˈutsʌn]; 9 April 1918 – 29 November 2008)[1] was a Danish architect. He was most notable for designing the
Sydney Opera House in Australia, completed in 1973. When it was declared a World Heritage Site on 28 June 2007, Utzon became only the second person to have received such recognition for one of his works during his lifetime, after Oscar Niemeyer.
Frank Gehry, one of the Pritzker Prize judges, commented:
“Utzon made a building well ahead of its time, far ahead of available technology, and he persevered through extraordinarily malicious publicity and negative criticism to build a building that changed the image of an entire country.”


This drawing was created listening to Lost LA,
and certainly I am concerned we will lose the Sydney Opera House
to rising tides in the coming catastrophes of climate change.

Of course, that is the least of the many losses.
