The entertainment hub
In the time, opera and orchestra were the main forms of entertainment. Therefore, there came a need for a structure that would house all sorts of entertainment for the public. Then came the idea for the Sydney Opera House.
There were several entries for designs for this major project, however, it was a Danish architect’s unusual design that won the contest. There were many conflicts concerning the unconventional design simple because of its sail like roof. Nevertheless, the structure came together beautifully.
