geoffrey bawa's architectural Sri Lanka
Geoffrey Bawa must be regarded as the most prolific and respected architect Sri Lanka has ever produced.
As the Geoffrey Bawa Trust puts it:
“Bawa’s work is characterised by a sensitivity to site and context. He produced ‘sustainable architecture’ long before the term was coined, and had developed his own ‘regional modernist’ stance well in advance of the theoreticians. His designs broke down the barriers between inside and outside, between interior design and landscape architecture and reduced buildings to a series of scenographically conceived spaces separated by courtyards and gardens.”
