Sydney design students selected to work on the Opera House

The University of Sydney once again dominates the chart with 4 out of 5 students represented in this prestigious multidisciplinary scholarship from the Sydney Opera House.

The Sydney Opera House has announced the Australian students selected for the 2021 MADE by the Opera House scholarship, with 4 out of 5 students coming from the University of Sydney.

MADE by the Opera House is an Australian-Danish exchange program that extends architect Jørn Utzon's collaborative approach to architecture, engineering and design. It provides the awardees the opportunity to work on a multidisciplinary project involving the city’s key architectural masterpiece.

From the School of Architecture, Design and Planning, congratulations to Rhys Grant (Master of Architecture) and Arissara Reed (Bachelor of Design in Architecture). From the Faculty of Engineering, congratulations to Cedric Danso-Boame (Bachelor of Engineering/Bachelor of Science) and Linh Nguyen (Bachelor of Engineering Honours/Bachelor of Music Studies).

Launched at the Opera House’s 40th Anniversary in 2013, the annual Multidisciplinary Australian Danish Exchange (MADE) gives five Australian and five Danish students the chance to work on a project and undertake a study tour in the other country.

MADE aims to promote international and cross-disciplinary interaction between students of architecture, engineering and design (of the built environment). As well as providing a multidisciplinary experience for Australian and Danish students, the program fosters cultural links between the two countries.

This year, the Australian winners will undertake a multidisciplinary project on the Sydney Opera House.
