WHEN I first saw the Sydney Opera House in early 1974 I thought: what a hideous building!
To my mind it looked completely out of character with beautiful Sydney Harbour; it was lumpy and looked unfinished. Another horrible example of 1960s post-modern architecture.
I haven’t changed my mind. Maybe if they painted it another colour, blue or brown maybe?
Of course, Sydney is not the only place in the world to build hideous monstrosities completely out of whack with its surroundings. And they are still at it thanks to casino mogul James Packer.
