Applications are now open for this year’s MADE by the Opera House scholarship, focused on architecture, engineering and design (in the built environment).

The Multidisciplinary Australian Danish Exchange, or MADE by the Opera House,celebrates the special connection between Australia and Denmark first forged by Jørn Utzon’s masterpiece.

MADE by the Opera House is a collaboration between the Sydney Opera House and the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, with generous support from Arup, Steensen Varming, the NSW Architects Registration Board and Danish foundations, The Bikuben Foundation, The Dreyer Foundation and The Obel Family Foundation.

The exchange extends the cross-disciplinary collaboration that gave birth to Australia’s most celebrated building into new generations, creating by our 50th Anniversary in 2023 a living legacy of 100 alumni with a deeper understanding of international practice across disciplines and hemispheres.

Each year five Australian and five Danish students will receive AU$6,000 to spend six weeks collaborating on a multidisciplinary project in Denmark and Australia respectively.

We encourage your students to apply by 22 July 2014 to be part of the Australian cohort in January-February 2015. The successful students will be invited to attend the farewell event for the inaugural Danish program at Sydney Opera House on 22 August 2014.
