No matter how you look at it, the Sydney Opera House is an architectural masterpiece. Designed by Danish architect Jorn Utzon, it consists of a large group of concrete shells which are supported by some 600 piers below sea level. To our surprise, the color of the shells is not white as it appears in pictures. It’s more of a matte-cream-color, which comes from the special tiles imported from Sweden. From afar, the shells appear a uniform white against one of the world’s most spectacular harbors.
