The House that Robert and I built !!!
When Nathalie was just a twinkle in her parent's eyes in the Rhône-Alpes, ADP's intrepid photographer was roaming over a very different Alpe.
Robert and I travelled to Sydney on several occasions to watch the fantastic, new Sydney Opera House, take shape, and we crawled all over it. As Architecture and Surveying students, we simply walked in and joined one of the many tours organized by the local faculties.
This photo was taken from the roof of the - then Unilever Building on Circular Quay in 1965. Thanks to Robert for the image and also for enhancing the original Kodachrome. All my shots were Black and White and I was lucky enough to have them published in the Sydney Daily Telegraph on the occasion of the Architect, Jørn Utzon's return in 2002 after an absence of 37 years.
