"Jorn Utzon is best known as the architect of the Sydney Opera House, probably the world's most famous modern building and arguably the twentieth century's boldest, most important and impressive work of architecture. All his works - both the large and famous and the small and private - with their brilliant simplicity and honest originality, are masterpieces of twentieth-century architecture." "This book presents all of Utzon's buildings in more than 400 outstanding color photographs taken by architecture photographer Per Nagel over a period of twenty-five years. Architect Vibe Udsen reviews each building and architecture critic Henrik Sten Moller presents a portrait of Jorn Utzon the man and the architect."--BOOK JACKET
The Edge of the Possible( Visual )

5 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The edge of possible charts the dramatic course of the creation of the iconic Sydney Opera House and features rare interviews with architect, Jorn Utzon as he reflects on his role in the compelling story of the conception and construction of the Sydney Opera House. Jorn Utzon was awarded the first prize in an international architecture competition to design an Opera House for Sydney. In 1957 he flew to Australia to begin work on the construction of the greatest building Australia has ever seen and, indeed, one of the finest achievements of modern architecture. Utzon was forced from the project in 1966 and has never returned to Australia. What defeated him in the end was politics. His triumph came with the 2007 World Heritage Listing of the building "as a work of human creative genius" and one of the 20th century's greatest buildings. "It stands by itself as one of the indisputable masterpieces of human creativity, not only in the 20th century but in the history of humankind" - Expert Evaluation Report to the UNESCO World Heritage Committee, 2007. The Edge of The Possible, winner Gold Plaque Best Documentary HUGO Awards. Directed by Daryl Dellora and produced by Sue Maslin

The fifth facade( Visual )

4 editions published between 1973 and 2014 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On 20 October 1973, the Sydney Opera House was officially opened by Queen Elizabeth II. From conception to completion, it had taken more than 15 years and over $100 million. A remarkable feat of engineering skill and innovation, this striking and imaginative building captured the world's interest and is considered by many to be among the great architectural achievements of the 20th century. In the years since its completion, the Sydney Opera House has become one of the most identifiable of Australia's icons - ranking with the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Uluru, the koala and kangaroo. The construction of this architectural masterpiece was recorded by the Australian Commonwealth Film Unit from its inception. The resulting documentary has been called The Fifth Facade - a reference to the roof which is the building's most distinctive feature. The fifth facade documents the history of the Opera House, from the selection of the site at Bennelong Point to the official opening. The commentary of Jorn Utzon, the Danish architect who won the worldwide competition for the original building design, offers insights into his vision for a construction appropriate to the to the site it occupied and the functions it was to serve. He details the unique structural and aesthetic problems that had to be solved to make his vision a reality. A Film Australia production. 2011 National Film and Sound Archive of Australia. Producer: Anthony Buckley Director: Donald Crombie Writer: Keith Gow, Peter Weir, Donald Crombie DOP/Cinematographer: Bruce Hillyard Narrator/Presenter: Sam Wanamaker, Jorn Utzon
Sydney Opera House : Jørn Utzon by Philip Drew( Book )

16 editions published between 1962 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jørn Utzon's Opera House has a heroic quality; indeed, Utzon referred to it himself as a kind of 'cathedral', analogous to a Gothic church in the way that light and movement play across its public spaces. Its complex shell-like roof structures echo Gothic arches in section, but the building breaks with all precedent in its three-dimensional form. Finding a practical solution to the construction of these roofs occupied the architect and the engineer Ove Arup for many years, necessitating considerable experimentation with pre-cast concrete technology. Disputes with his client led to Utzon's withdrawal from the project, and the Opera House looked for a time as if it might be a white elephant. At last, after a sixteen-year gestation, it opened in 1973 having already become an Australian national icon"--Inside front cover

In this Danish documentary, Utzon gives his first TV interview for twenty years. His falling-out with the New South Wales Government, and his subsequent dismissal from the Opera House project, has been the subject of much discussion and analysis over the years. As well as hearing Utzon's side of the story, two of his contemporaries also have their say, adding to our knowledge of the architect's work both before and after the Opera House
