Architectural documentaries for you to watch.
I found this great article on the Arch Daily web site on 40 Architectural Documentaries to watch for 2014.
"Featuring a fantastic range of films telling the tales of some of the world’s greatest unsung architectural heroes. We now bring you eleven more for 2014, looking past the panoply of stars to bring you more of the best architectural documentaries which will provoke, intrigue and beguile".
The first documentary is on the Sydney Opera House where Jørn Utzon, acclaimed architect of the Sydney Opera House, tells the story of the design and construction of his masterpiece in person.
This film charts the dramatic course of the creation of a masterpiece and includes a rare interview with Jørn Utzon as he reflects on his role in the compelling story of the conception and construction of the Sydney Opera House.
Check it out, it's a very interesting story about the iconic symbol of Australia.
