a+u: Geoffrey Bawa — Essence of Sri Lanka

FREE US SHIPPING ON ORDERS OVER $50

Considered the foremost contemporary architect in Sri Lanka, Geoffrey Bawa's work continues to have a lasting influence on multiple generations of Asian architects. Working mainly in Sri Lanka and tropical Asia, he adapted vernacular elements, materials, and construction methodologies before current ideas of sustainability and climate-responsiveness came about. The result is an architecture that is responsive to its climate and landscape, with carefully orchestrated spaces blurring interior and exterior boundaries.
