Oranges and Orange Segments

Once upon a time, I was a student of Architecture.  I loved learning about the world’s greatest architects, their works and the inspiration behind them.  It often surprised me that simple, ordinary, everyday objects were often the inspiration to numerous notable structures around the globe.  Like these…


What building do these oranges remind you of?  Nothing?  Maybe this will trigger something…


There.  How about that?  Any structure in mind?  Maybe it will help if I cut off a portion from each of the segments and arrange them a certain way…

Here’s another pic…


Believe it or not, mandarin segments, in addition to sails on a yacht and ribbed palm leaves served as inspiration to the design of the Sydney Opera House.

This marvel of architecture was designed by Danish architect Jorn Utzon.  Ain’t he great? :D
