Geoffery Bawa: The Complete Works

Geoffery Bawa: The Complete Works


 Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa and the buildings he created have become legendary in the region and influential around the world. Few architects achieved his harmonious fusion of local building traditions with modern forms and sensibility

Bawa's early works were houses that artfully married vernacular styles and responses to climate and site with a modern architectural vocabulary. Soon his talents were applied on a larger scale, to the Sri Lanka parliament, a number of carefully situated and designed hotels, schools, offices and other public buildings. The summation of his oeuvre is symbolized by his own two residences - a house in Colombo and a residential complex in Lunuganga - whose evolution eloquently reflect Bawa's career and personality.
