The construction of Sydney Opera House began in 1959, concluded 3 steps: Podium fixed, Roof fixed and Interiors decoration. It took 14 years for completing the whole building and it was proved that it was an outstanding building in the world: in 2007, it became a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

And then it will discuss about the building in terms of local architectural context and global architectural context. It will discuss whether the building a regionalist response to its site or historical conditions, and whether it is a regionalist response or part of an international movement.

2. Introduction of Sydney Opera House 
Sydney Opera House is close to the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and it’s near to the Sydney business central district and the Royal Botanic Gardens.The appearance of the building was like the unclosed orange or sails. (See figure 1)
After World War II, as the development of economic, people had stronger demand for entertainment.During that time there was no opera house in Australian. So it was essential for building Sydney Opera House. A global design competition was held in September 1955, and 233 architects from 32 countries in all over the world join in the competition. Finally JørnUtzon took the winner in 1957.  
The project management was so bad for building Sydney Opera House. It was estimated to be completed in January 1963 and to cost only $7 million. However in reality,it was 1,457% over budget and completed almost 10 years late. It was mainly because that the project was extremely creative and no one had ever made the similar building. 
Whatever, Sydney Opera House was still a very important modern building for Australian: it won RAIA Merit Award, in 1974, Meritorious Lighting Award of the Illuminating Engineering Society of Australia in 1974 and RAIA Civic Design Award in 1980. It opens for the public for 24 hours in each day, attracts around 2 million audiences from the world in each year.  
3. Appreciate the building from local aspect
3.1 Local architectural context.
Generally speaking, Sydney Opera House was harmoniously fused in the environment around it. The appearance was like the shells or the large sails, which were mostly relevant to sea or beach; furthermore, the three sides of the building were near to the sea. It’s easy to see that Sydney Opera House was deeply resonating with local environment. 
On the aspect of design style, the design was from a non-famous house designer, JørnUtzon, who had travelled a lot of countries and gained creative ideas from different territories. For example, in 1948 JørnUtzon travelled to North Africa Morocco, France and felt that the simple buildings were harmonious with the local environment. It moved JørnUtzon and deeply impacted his design style. 
On the aspect of location, the location was carefully selected, andnot far away from the city center. By leveraging the Cape Bay (with appropriate reclamation), it could provide a broad and waterfront landscape. The building was much like moving sail;from another angle of view it is like a white shell;it also seemed like a lovely flower that is in full bloom (See figure 2). The metaphorical image attracts many people and associates with their beautiful imagine, such a beautiful picture of blue sky, blue sea and green trees.
3.2 Historical analysis in Australian
Before Sydney Opera House was completed, the opera houses in Australian could not compete with the famous opera houses in Europe. During that period, a group of people tried their best for persuading the government to build the fixedacting opera houses.Finally their hard work gained the attention and support from Australian government who evenlaunched a lottery in order to gather the money. 
Sydney Opera House was formally opened on October 20th, 1973. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II joined the opening.  Since then, Sydney ended the history of without an opera house. 
3.3 The evaluation for Sydney Opera Housefrom Australian aspect
Firstly this is a coastal construction projects. The relationship of seawall, road, stairs and platforms were deal well through thoughtful planning. The seawall could preventhumidity but does not negatively affect the landscape; the roadsarewide and much lower than the bank so that it’s easy to provide office space and entertainment space. 
Secondly, the architectural image is subjected to architectural function and achieves coordination and unification with the local architectural context.  The building was built for human beings; therefore it should be humanism and social responsibility. Sydney Opera House performed well in this aspect as the location, the size of each part and the color were natural and harmonious.
Finally, it’s easy to see that the generous of Australian government helped to accomplish the building. Though the designer was from Denmark and even didn’t design any public architecture, Australian government still adopted his design. 
4. Appreciate Sydney Opera House from global aspect
4.1 Global context: it’s part of an international movement
On one hand, after World War II, the global architecture style became more unified and similar. It was mainly because the public in the world were applying peace globally. As a result, Australian government launched the competitor to select the best architecture design for Sydney Opera House from the global architects. 
On the other hand, the pioneers of modern architecture took deep impact on the buildings style since 1900. Le Corbusier was such a pioneer who was a Swiss-French architect.His buildings were based on modern architectural concise square box, to carefully use the curve and veranda as active elements. His understanding of the material and the perfection of the detail and proportion made his architecture a classical work. By his influence, the relationship among the light, the public space, the white space and the transformation space became the major concern of the architects in the world. The designer of Sydney Opera House was deeply impacted by the theory, he would like to adopt expensive and perfect materials so that it could create the perfect and beautiful framework (See figure 3). 
4.2 Theappropriate range of historical analysis
First of all, due to the appearance and the structure of large span is unprecedented, engineers did not judge whether the folding type structure was suitable, so it was a better choice to use a computer for structure analysis.  This was also the first time for using computers for structure analysis and calculation in the world, so it created a precedent in construction history.
Furthermore, though it met series of difficulties when building Sydney Opera House, it achieved positive regeneration from the world since its completion, it attracts lots people from global and won a lot of worldwide rewards such as UNESCO World Heritage Site, RAIA Civic Design Award and so on. 
4.3 Theoretical, and critical analysis
After World War II, the architecture style tended to be globalization, and Sydney has chosen the designer with a worldwide perspective:JørnUtzon, a foreign architect, was chosen. JørnUtzonspent a lot of time on travelling in Malaysia, China, Japan, and so on, deeply though about how the buildings coordinate with the local environment and culture context. He combined those ancient traditions with his own harmony, forming an artistic architectural sense, as well as the natural instinct of organic building linked to the situation in local. He was always ahead of his time, and deserved to be one of the few modern architects who created such outstanding architecture.
