Jørn Oberg Utzon, Danish architect, created many wonderful works, at least one of which everyone in the civilized world has seen, if not in its physical presence, then in a pictorial representation.
Mr. Utzon was born in 1918 and died in 2008 at age 90.
Utzon's 1957 competitive entry seeking the award for the design of the Sydney Opera House was one of 233. Eero Saarinen said that Utzon's submission was "genius" and he could support no other.
Utzon was born in Copenhagen, April 9, 1918.
