A Typeface for the Sydney Opera House

irina's picture

I'm working on a project at school which requires using The Sydney Opera House as a loose theme for a stationary system. I'm having trouble choosing an appropriate typeface for this. If you're not familiar with the Opera House- building commenced in 1958 and the architect, Jorn Utzon was Danish (his design won a competition). The building is described as a piece of expressionist architecture and has become an Australian icon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sydney_Opera_House). I'm quite new to typography and after some research the closest that I've come to what I'm looking for is a Kabel by Rudolph Koch- an example of German expressionism, but I'm sure there must be something more suitable.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Futura? Berling?

This is a stationary system for the opera house to use?
