Jørn Utzon

Jørn Utzon is a Danish designer and architect, most notable for designing the Sydney Opera House.

Utzon had a Nordic sense of concern for nature which, in his design, emphasized the synthesis of form, material and function for social values. His fascination with the architectural legacies of the ancient Mayas, the Islamic world, China, and Japan also informed his practice.

This developed into what Utzon later referred to as Additive Architecture, comparing his approach to the growth patterns of nature.
