Sydney Opera House in Sydney, Australia

The city’s architectural symbol is the Sydney Opera House located on Bennelong Point and jetting into the Sydney Harbour. The unique concert hall features concrete shells covered by over a million tiles with a chevron pattern sitting on top of a platform of pink granite. Jørn Utzon won the coveted Pritzker Architecture Prize for his design. Since the $102 million facility opened in 1973, it has hosted countless plays, ballets and musical performances. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is also home to the Sydney Theatre Company, the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and Opera Australia.
