An updated book including the full range of Sri-Lankan born Geoffrey Bawa’s architectural designs. It examines the Kandalama Hotel in Dambullah, the house on the Cinnamon Hill at Lunuganga, and his achievements in Sri Lanka and other parts of southern Asia. Personal in his approach, Bawa balances an appreciation of the western humanist tradition in architecture with local needs and lifestyles. The book discusses Bawa’s houses, schools, offices and public buildings, with particular emphasis on his own garden at Lunuganga. Essays are included by the designer Barbara Sansoni and the architect Ulrik Plesner.
