Danish architect Jorn Utzon was born in 1918 into an artistic family, a line which continues through his children today.
Utzon has a unique, truly global style. He looks for inspiration in local building traditions or nature, from around the world. From that point onwards, he impresses his stamp of originality on all of his projects. This applies whether it is a building in an Arab desert, a group of houses in a Danish field, or his best know landmark, an opera house on a windswept promontory in Australia.
