Jørn Utzon in retrospective solo exhibition

In 2018 Jørn Utzon would have celebrated his 100th birthday. DAC honors the Danish starchitect with the solo exhibition “Horisont” presenting Utzon’s many travels and his curiosity for foreign cultures which influenced his iconic architecture.

Utzon was inspired by temples and the shape of their roofs – almost free floating above elevated platforms. And it was this illusion of the floating roof that he wanted to recreate for the Sydney Operahouse.
