Anthony Chidiac teaches history and has written The Priceless Gift: Utzon’s Symphony, a picture book outlining the story of Jørn Utzon’s journey to Australia to commemorate the architect’s 100th birthday.

He tells Deborah Knight Utzon’s design was not initially successful but was rediscovered in a scrap heap.
