After a good eights months researching the history of Sydney Opera House, I sat down in August 2012 for six weeks and wrote the script that became the main narrative for The Opera House Project. So it was a real thrill to be recognised for the work last Friday.
Here are six of my favourite chapters (find the text versions here):
Chapter Two: 1956, the Year of the Competition
Chapter Three: Jørn Utzon, the Great Eclectic
Chapter Nine: Stage One Begins
Chapter Twelve: 1962, The Yellow Book and the Final Roof Geometry
Chapter Sixteen: Perfection Lost
Chapter Twenty Two: The Return
