In 1972, Danish architect Jørn Utzon (best known as the architect of the extravagant Sydney Opera House in Australia) decided to build his family a summer home on a low cliff near Porto Petro in the southernmost part of Mallorca, Spain. His own home could not be more different in scale and style from his public commissions. Join us for a tour of “Can Lis,” named after Utzon’s wife, Lis.
