The Answer: Half or Semi Cirles

11 Jul

The Sydney Opera House was designed by Jørn Oberg Utzon. He won a design contest in 1957. Although the opera house does look like sails, Utzon said his design was inspired by the simple act of peeling an orange: the 14 shells of the building, if combined, would form a perfect sphere.
