An architect to take as an example, Jørn Oberg Utzon cared about the human aspects of architecture being distant from an impersonal and functionalistic view of construction. Accor- ding to his view, buildings should always take care of human well-being, intended in a physical and moral sense. He is not the modern architect that works only with the computer, on the contrary, he underlines the importance of getting in contact with the real materials, in order to catch their essence. Jørn Utzon was a relatively unknown 38 year old Dane in January 1957 when his entry was announced winner of the inter- national competition to design a ‘national opera house’ for Sydney’s Bennelong Point. His vision for a sculptural, curved building on the Harbour broke radically with the cube and rectangular shapes of modernist architecture. The building transformed his career and, in turn, transformed the image of an entire nation. To celebrate his spirit and esteem we have created this brilliant collection of gorgeous decorator fabrics inspired by his avantgarde search for architectural proposals that reflect modern living.
