Riassunto: Jorn Utzon had the good fortune to win the international design competition for the Sydney Opera House in 1957, but from the outset, the enterprise was dogged by parochial politicking. By 1966 Utzon found himself the centre of a raging artistic and political scandal, and the unrelenting scrutiny left him with no choice but to leave Australia - never to return and see his masterpiece. This is a truly enthralling story of an architect and the icon he created.

Paperback thick octavo, very good condition, colour & black & white photos, black & white drawings, bottom corner front cover creased, corner tips rear cover little bent, edges & pages lightly toned, small sticker mark flyleaf, minor edgewear. Heavy. 574 pp. This book is the story of both a great architect and his greatest building. Jorn Utzon had the good fortune to win the international design competition for the Sydney Opera House in 1957, but he was unlucky - from the outset the enterprise was mired in parochial politicking. His withdrawal from the Opera House project in 1966 was in part prompted by strained relationships with NSW politicians and engineers over the design and building process, and in part due to the huge tax burden created by dual Australian-Danish residency. He left Australia and never returned to see his masterpiece. Codice libro della libreria 27358
