Grimshaw is the host firm for the 2023 MADE by the Sydney Opera House during the month of August. The 2023 program coincides with the 50th Anniversary of the Opera House.
The Multi-Disciplinary Australian Danish Exchange (MADE) program is an Australian-Danish exchange program developed to continue the international and interdisciplinary links first forged by Jørn Utzon's architectural masterpiece. Each year, five students from Denmark and five students from Australia studying architecture, engineering and design participate in the two-month exchange.
The 2023 cohort in Australia are guided by architects and designers from our Sydney studio in collaboration with specialist mentors from Arup and Steensen Varming.
Their brief will be informed by the Sydney Opera House vision for future works associated with the Strategic Building Plan Refresh 2024-2026.
MADE participants: Marie Scharff, Isac Lindberg, Astrid Bjoern Doennem, Ditte Gyldendal Amby, Christoffer Brødsgaard. Mentor Georgia Vitale.
