We're celebrating the milestone by sharing a digital mapping projection from Vivid Sydney, an annual festival that transforms the city's  waterfront and public spaces into dynamic and light-filled landscapes.
Architectural landmarks, including the Opera House, serve as the backdrop, or urban canvas, for beautiful interactive digital sculpture, captured beautifully in the timelapse video below.

View this and other videos on Vimeo, and make sure to revisit urbanscreen's 2012 Vivd Sydney Opera House facade projection, an impressive implementation of artistry, technology and public art- the perfect way to celebrate the architectural anniversary of one of the most well-known modern buildings...
