Geoffrey Bawa – Architect in Sri Lanka is the first major monograph of the Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa (1919–2003). Bawa was known for his pioneering work for so-called tropical modernism and he was awarded The Chairman’s Award of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture in recognition of a lifetime’s achievement in 2001.
The Geoffrey Bawa monograph presents in-depth coverage of Bawa’s principal works completed between the 1950s and early 1980s. The showcased projects include housing design, gardens, schools, offices, hotels and public buildings. The book also contains an introduction by Brian Brace Taylor, the editor; a statement by the architect; and an essay about Bawa’s architectural thinking by Barbara Sansoni.
