What Happened to the Genius that was Jørn Utzon?

In the mid 1950s it was decided to run a competition for a design for a new performing arts centre in a great location in the heart of Sydney.

The winning entry was by a Danish designer called Jørn Utzon who didn’t just design an arts centre, he designed a radically new arts centre.

Due to lots of problems with completing the construction the Australian government and Jørn Utzon fell out and he was not invited to the opening ceremony which is sad.
