Sydney Opera House

| No Comments


The Opera House is a spectacular construcion that didn't exactly follow the original architect's design (because that would have been too expensive to build), so he never visited the building. The roof tiles are not all white - the building would have been too bright for sailors in the harbor. When I was there (1989) they were photographing every roof tile (in blocks) because some tiles were cracked and needed replacement.
