This series consists of the original competition drawings submitted by Jørn Utzon as part of the 'International Competition for a National Opera House at Bennelong Point'. It is these drawings which assessors of the Opera House Committee awarded Jørn Utzon first prize of £5,000 on 29 January 1957. As a result Mr Utzon was commissioned by the Government of New South Wales to do final drawings for the Opera House, and to supervise its construction.
The conditions and programme of the competition are set out in "An International Competition for a National Opera House at Bennelong Point, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia" (NRS 12702).
