Jørn Utzon (1918-2008) was a Danish architect, best known for designing the Sydney Opera House in Australia. Utzon attended the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts from where he gratuated in 1942. During the following years he worked also at Alvar Aalto's office, learning more about functionalism and aesthetics. Utzon won the architecture competition for Sydney Opera House in 1957.
Utzon often referred to the Swedish architect Erik Gunnar Asplund along with Alvar Aalto and Frank Lloyd Wright as his architectural kin. After travelling through Europe, the United States and Mexico, Utzon established his own practice in Copenhagen, working mainly as an architect throughout the world. In 2003, he received the Pritzker Prize, architecture's highest honor.
