Sydney Opera House: A World Heritage

The Sydney Opera House is an arts complex building with expressionist modern design style of architecture. This was designed by Jorn Utzon, a Danish architect. It is one of the world’s most distinctive 20th century buildings and one of the world’s most famous venues for performing arts.

This was inscribed into the prestigious list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites on June 28, 2007. This is the landmark of Sydney or Australia in general that captivates everyone just like me. It was awesome. I went around it and simply amazed me. Just imagine the design where the roof was outstanding. It’s a pre-cast concrete ribbed roof. The construction of this building was completed in 1973.
