Format: Paperback
This book is full of excellent photographs and provides enough evidence of the unfullfilled genius of Jorn Utzon, who was prevented from completing his magnificent building concept.This was acheived by the reportings of an ignorant press, and political pressures brought about by some smalltime polititian, who wanted to exploit the costs of this wonder, and bring himself to the forefront, as the saviour of public money! It is unbeleivable today, that such treatment could be given to a man with such vision as Utzon displayed in his drawings. If costs were all that counted in buildings - we would never had seen York Minster, for example.
The people of Australia are today proud of this building, but it is only a shadow of what Utzon had in mind. Ah well, its only money!
