MADE by the Opera House
MADE (Multidisciplinary Australian Danish Exchange) by the Opera House is an extra-curricular programme offered to Australian and Danish students of architecture, engineering and design. The exchange programme builds on the connection, which arose between Denmark and Australia when Jørn Utzon created ‘the Sydney Opera House’. MADE by the Opera House is about continuing the cross-disciplinary method, which formed the basis for the Opera House in Sydney.
MADE is developed and supported by the following partners and sponsors: Sydney Opera House Trust, The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts - Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation, The Bikuben Foundation, The Henrik Frode Obel Foundation, The Dreyer Foundation, Arup, Steensen Varming, the NSW Architects Registration Board and AMP capital.
The programme was established at the Sydney Opera House’s 40th Anniversary in 2013 and will lead up to the 50th Anniversary in 2023. During this period, 100 students in total will have taken the programme and be part of a MADE alumni network.
