Description

As is generally known, Jrn Utzon and his colleagues, among whom Prip-Buus counted himself, were only allowed to half-finish the task. Even in spite of this, the Sydney Opera House was finally proclaimed the most important work of architecturein the 20th century, and was seen by many as a symbol of the new millennium.

Prip-Buus' letters and diary, written immediately before the breach forced on Utzon by the Australian government in 1966, offer a unique account of the day-to-day problems faced by architects who now work in a world over which they can exert even less influence. But despite all the difficulties, the experience in Sydney was not to be missed.
