The winning architect was John Utzon, a Danish architect who was hardly known outside his country. His design was mostly chosen because of its form and relation to context. The form of the building distinguished itself from other buildings of the time. The building appeared differently when viewed from different angles, designed to resemble the sail of a ship, it related to its location at the harbour. The professor classisfies it as a unique structure because she believes that the building design did not conform to the buildings of its time and was unique in many aspects. It was a blend of art, architecture, combined using skills of engineering and technology of the time, also the high technology used in the project was the coming of age in computers used in the art of building. The building set itself apart from the modern architecture that was in play at the time, it was a change from the buildings of the international style and its skyscrapers. Neither was it organic, sure it may have had some relation due to its form but it was mostly developed for its aesthetic reasons, the curve of the roof captured all the attention of the harbour front. Its imaginative form and shape captured the eyes of millions, it remains one of the most highly recognised buildings of all time. The speaker believes that the Sydney opera house shall always remain one of the great masterworks.
The college years. I do believe that the years spent in college are the best of the times in a persons life. Firstly because it’s a point of time in life where you are not saddled with responsibility and the main aim in life is to study and learn as much as possible. The five years that I spent in architecture school were definitely the best. The memories of trips with friends the spontaneity of the parties, the nights spent together working on submissions, late night cups of tea and coffee, and making models together is surely a time I would love to revisit. Secondly I believe that college is the best time because the environment of learning and fun and spending time with friends add to who we are as a person, the incidents and working and learning together is not found in many places in life. Thirdly I believe that college can be a place where values and principles are developed and life is easier with friends around al the time. College is therefore one of the best times of a persons life, I surely will treasure mine.
