The Sydney Opera House is the mother and father of all modern landmark buildings. Although its architect was forced to resign and it was never properly finished inside, the opera house has come to define not only a city, but also an entire nation and continent. The Sydney Opera House was meant to look like a giant sailing ship. But you may bring whatever interpretation you would to it.
Since its opening in 1973, the Sydney Opera House has been host to many of the most memorable, world-class artistic performances. However, as time goes by, modifications are required to meet the needs and technology of the day, without, of course, losing its architectural integrity. The New South Whales government has agreed to provide $69. 3 million for several projects to improve the facilities and environment for performing arts companies, patrons and visitors.
