No Buko, No Pie


Do you know what the inspiration was for the Sydney Opera House? It was the simple act of peeling an orange: the 14 shells, when combined, will form a perfect sphere.

It’s amazing how something as simple as an orange can pave the way for some of the more complex geometries of modern architecture. Its design techniques and its construction involved a lot of firsts in architecture and engineering. In 2007, The Sydney Opera House was made into a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

I guess this is something good to think about the next time you think your idea is simple and maybe insignificant. Or maybe the next time you think the odds are against you, because with a little more courage you might be onto something big.
