Jørn Utzon's geometry for the Sydney Opera House. Published in 1962 as the cover of Den Gule Bog, which was published in connection with the construction.
Want the whole story? It comes here.
You are looking at one of the most important drawings that Jørn Utzon has ever made.
Jørn won the competition to build the Opera House in Sydney in 1957. But it was only after four years of work that he found the technical solution for the roof. And that's the one you're looking at.
The poster here is the cover for The Yellow Book, which was published in 1962. It is one of the two books that Jørn published during the construction of the Opera House in Sydney, so that the whole world could follow the historic project.
The Yellow Book is number two in the series of books. By that time the workers in Sydney had finished building the plateau. And now they had to build the roof. So it was at the last minute that Jørn Utzon found a solution.
