The House: Edifice as Icon

Willy Lit Fest

Event Date: 16 June 2019
Author / Presenters: Enza Gandolfo, Helen Pitt

Arguably, the best-loved building in Australia, the Sydney Opera House nearly didn’t get off the drawing board. When it did, the lives of everyone involved in its construction were utterly changed: some for the better, many for the worse. From idea to opening, it took nearly two decades, four premiers, over one million tiles and $102 million to create the 20th century’s best-known building. Join local author and Stella Prize nominee Enza Gandolfo (The Bridge) in conversation with author and journalist Helen Pitt.
