Formatted abstract
Montage of digital images. One of three montages exploring the significance of context to the Sydney Opera House.

In his article “Platforms and Plateaus”, Zodiac 10, 1962, pp 113-141; Jørn Utzon writes about the central role of the Yucatan jungle in the experience of climbing the Mayan temple structure and reaching its plateau as 'like being on another planet'. An invitation by Inside Magazine to proposed ideas for alterations to the Sydney Opera House, provoked the exploration of past, present and future constructed contexts for experiencing Utzon's Opera House plateau.

Eucalyptus Jungle reinstates the 1788 city context of the Sydney Opera House and draws to mind the different light experience between harbourside forest and the Yucatan jungle in climbing the plateau.
