Western Foyers and Western Broadwalk
9:30am daily, October 14 to October 28
A celebration of Jørn Utzon’s work and inspirations, curated by Line Nørskov Eriksen from the Utzon Center, Denmark.
Horisont is Danish for ‘horizon’, and refers to the importance of widening your horizons and the value of travel for an architect’s creative and critical formation.
This exhibition takes you on a journey through Utzon’s travels and inspirations as you move through the Western Foyers and Broadwalk. It celebrates not only the remarkable work of Jørn Utzon, but features his inspirations and how his work was coloured by his travel across the world, including immersive experiences in Morocco, Native America, Mexico, the Far East, the Middle East, Hawaii and the Mediterranean.
Horisont: an Opera House and a world apart was opened at the Utzon Center, Denmark by His Royal Highness the Crown Prince of Denmark on the centenary of Jørn Utzon’s birth and this exhibition is an adaptation as a part of the 45th celebrations.
Presented with support from Sydney Opera House Principal Partner, Samsung.
This event is part of the Sydney Opera House’s 45 year celebrations, enabled through the generous support of Michael and Manuela Darling.
