In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Sydney Opera House this coming October, the Australian institution is planning a series of design-led events in recognition of Danish architect Jorn Utzon’s masterpiece.
On 20-28 October 2013, the Sydney Opera House will invite Danish architects, designers and artists to showcase their work under its distinguished roof, while in Denmark the Utzon Center in Aalborg will display never-before-seen sketches and models of the Sydney Opera House and create a section of the structure’s stairway for the public to enjoy.

CEO of Sydney Opera House Louise Herron explained: “The Opera House has been central to Australian life and identity for forty years. It has also been integral to forging important links between our two countries that continue to strengthen and evolve to this day, which is why it is so appropriate that new generations of Danes play a central part in our 40th anniversary celebrations in October.
“Our anniversary is very much about safeguarding Jorn Utzon’s masterpiece for future generations of artists, visitors and audiences.”
