"The Sydney Opera House constitutes a masterpiece of 20th century architecture. Its significance is based on its unparalleled design and construction; its exceptional engineering achievements and technological innovation and its position as a world-famous icon of architecture. It is a daring and visionary experiment that has had an enduring influence on the emergent architecture of the late 20th century." --http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/166

The video below is an AWESOME depiction of a poetic homage to the architecture and its constructional concept of the architect, Jørn Utzon. "As Utzon said about his architecture he wanted to give it a human expression, the projected video layer in that same sense aims to establish an immediate, architectural expression."---http://vimeo.com/45835867
