The Priceless Gift explores the inspiring story of Jorn Utzon whose gifts of creativity, imagination and determination would change the landscape of Sydney forever with his innovative Opera House design.
As an architect Utzon dared to dream and strove for beauty and excellence with his groundbreaking designs. His Sydney Opera House project challenged the engineers with questions never encountered before in a building that over time he was able to solve. Nevertheless, his radical vision came into conflict with the politicians and powerbrokers who questioned his overall direction and planning decisions. They were more concerned with balancing budgets and meeting strict deadlines than with creating a priceless work of art for the city.
