The Sydney Opera House Scale Replica Kit By Model Landmarks is the perfect gift for fans of great architecture and architects. In 1956 the State of New South Wales ran an international competition for a National Opera House at Bennelong Point, Sydney. This attracted more than 220 entries from 32 countries. Jørn Utzon a young Danish architect won the competition and was hailed by the architectural critic Sigfried Giedion as opening a new chapter in contemporary architecture. Completed in 1973 the Opera House is an architectural masterpiece and was included in the National Heritage List in 2005. In 2007 the building was inscribed on the World Heritage List.
Hidden within the model's sweeping exterior is a clever framework that captures the unique geometry of each "sail." The wood finish echoes the individual tiles that make up the surface of the Opera House. Finely molded acrylic pieces replicate the window walls at the ends of each "sail."
