Utzon's Universe

Ever wondered how the Opera House was built? Utzon’s Universe is a series of free workshops exploring the design principles of architect Jørn Utzon.

This event is part of the Sydney Opera House’s 45 year celebrations, enabled through the generous support of Michael and Manuela Darling.

In the Utzon Room

“...explore the world of architecture, using both your hands and your mind with Jørn Utzon as your guide."

Celebrating 45 years

Join us in celebrating this October. In recognition of our 45th anniversary, the Centenary of Sydney Opera House architect Jørn Utzon and reaching the mid-point in our decade of renewal we have planned a number of memorable activities to mark the occasion.

Bring out your inner architect!

Utzon's Universe is a series of free workshops for kids, based on the book Utzon's Universe written by Denmark’s finest architectural educators Malene Abildgaard and Julie Dufour.

Create and play with House in a Tree, A Figure of Yourself, Chair with a Form and Platform with a Roof.  Each station will be staffed by an artist who will help you and your family produce wonderful creations based on the architectural principles of Jørn Utzon.

Make mini models and daring constructions with the whole family!

This is a free event. All materials are supplied but registration is necessary.
