Opera House
To see the Opera House like this you have to hop on a boat.
The roof of the Sydney Opera House were designed by the Danish architect
Joörn Utzon. The building was begun in 1959 but due to political
claims Utzon quit his job in 1966. The building then was continued by
an architects consortium and finished 1973. Instead of costing $7 million
the amount was $102 million in the end.
