Protesting Utzon's removal

I recently picked up two issues of the "Architecture in Detail" series at the Phaidon store (good warehouse sale going on now), one of which covers the Sydney Opera House. Like all good buildings, the back-story is just as juicy, including political tensions, Utzon being forced to leave the job, protests, ridiculous cost overruns and geometric analysis well ahead of it's time.
