As architectural inspiration, the sail is a modern classic: clean, white, and statuesque; evoking thoughts of summertime and sunshine and the sea. One need only look to Jorn Utzon’s Sydney Opera House – or to the smaller-scale shade sails accenting a heap of contemporary cafés and backyards – to realise that the sail features prominently in Australia’s architectural vernacular.
