The Observer has published some fascinating (and, quite frankly, awful) ideas from the 1950s for the Sydney Opera House that thankfully didn’t get built.

The one that did was controversial at the time (and still is) but it’s certainly iconic. I can’t imagine Sydney harbour with any of the monstrosities you can see here. Some aren’t bad – one looks a little like the Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay which is one of my favourite buildings. But the others make me wonder what architects are on, quite frankly.
