The Sydney Opera House event, which takes place on October 17, sold-out quickly so we are delighted to be able to offer a livestream of the evening.
It’s 13 years since Jan gave the inaugural UTZON Lecture in 2010 and, as part of the Sydney Opera House celebrations, he together with his sister Lin, will re-examine the architectural brilliance of the building that has inspired a nation, and share stories of their father’s recollections of his experience and the legacy he’s left them as a family.
The UTZON lecture series is led by Associate Professor Phil Oldfield head of UNSW’s School of Built Environment.
“At UNSW Arts, Design & Architecture we have a commitment not only to lead research that improves our cities, but also to tell the pressing stories behind our buildings and cities to a public audience,” says A/Prof. Oldfield. “That is the role of our UTZON Lectures, and we’ve now welcomed over 50 experts from all over the world to Sydney – city mayors, world-renowned researchers, judges and policy makers, Pulitzer prize winners and global architects – to tell their stories about how we can make cities more sustainable, more equitable and more resilient. We are delighted to welcome Jan and Lin Utzon back to Australia to deliver the 2023 UTZON Lecture.”
