Description
In the late 1950s the New South Wales (NSW) Government established an appeal fund to finance the construction of the Sydney Opera House, and conducted a competition for its design. The winning entry was submitted by Jorn Utzon, but ironicly the design was beyond the capabilities of engineering of the time. Construction began in March of 1959 with a cost estimate of $7 million and scheduled completion date of January 1963. After years of set-backs, the Opera House was finally completed in 1973, at a cost of $102 million.
