Jørn Utzon (1918-2008) had great fascination for the building cultures around the world throughout his lifetime, and Chinese architecture has been a persistent source that nurtured his architectural belief. His Sydney Opera house design (1956-66) presents how he perceived East Asian architecture as his inspiration, as his vision for this still unfinished masterpiece.
