UNSW Built Environment Event: Launch of the 2010 Utzon Lecture Series

1 04 2010

Last week Jan Utzon was invited to speak at the launch of UNSW Built Environment’s 2010 Utzon Letcure Series.  Nearly 500 people turned up – students, staff, alumni, industry professionals to listen to Jan’s story – he talked about his life – living in Sydney, studying architecture at UNSW, and of course, about his father, Jorn who designed the Sydney Opera House.

Join us for the second lecture in the 2010 Utzon Lecture Series with international guest Adrian Carter from the Utzon Research Centre in Denmark for his talk entitled ‘Inspirations and Visions.’  RSVP essential: holly.f@unsw.edu.au.
