Sydney Opera House

Description

Australia's preeminent cultural hub is the Sydney Opera House. The building's array of white-tiled sails jut into the harbor at Bennelong Point, perched on a pink granite base, famous for its cutting-edge architecture. The iconic structure was designed by Danish architect Jorn Utzon, and Australians have been divided about its construction ever since it opened way over-budget in 1973. The opera house was recently declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has a number of venues under its sails.
