About this scrapbook page:
Everyone knows this building, but not many know the story of his designer, Danish architect Jorn Utzon and the saga of it's construction. Idiots who almost ruined the interior of this magnificent building are long gone. Today, we try to right the wrongs of the past, maybe the Opera will finally sing...

Well I didn't know about any of this controversy until reading this page, but despite all the tribulations involved in it's conception and birth, it still is one of the most stunningly beautiful and astonishing buildings that's ever been created! I'll never be able to look at it in the same way though, now that you've revealed it was based on an orange peel!Fantastic page, Miki! Well done. 10+10!

Thank you so much for joining the challenge. This must surely be one of the most famous buildings in the world, despite the contentions of the Eiffel Tower and others. I did not know there had been so much strife over it's design. Thank you for sharing. Great page and layout Miki. The background intrigues me as it seems to be from Google, yet is not!
