Bachelor of Interior Architecture



My proposition for Barangaroo is a physical and theoretical deconstruction of the Sydney Opera House and attempts to understand iconicity. In doing so I referenced theories of Jorn Oberg Utzon. Utzon spoke of the 5th elevation or façade and for an acoustically perfect environment.

Utzon stated that light disperses evenly across the land once reflected and refracted off the chop of the sea. I have held these principles close and have represented these ideals in my architecture and interior.
