Description: Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa, born 1919, fused local construction traditions with modern forms and sensibility to create harmonious and pleasurable buildings that have become legendary in the region and influential around the world. This volume is a documentation and appreciation of the man and his work. Part One contains three chapters on Bawa's early life, the history of Sri Lankan architecture and Bawa's first firm, which he eventually took over. Part Two, comprising four chapters, is the heart of the book and presents all Bawa's major works by project, through extensive texts, drawings and plans. Part Three features two chapters: a long, single chapter devoted to Bawa's two life-long projects - his house in Colombo and his estate Lunuganga - which came to encapsulate his entire oeuvre; and a postscript which sums up the work and describes its relevance to contemporary architectural practice.

  Book  Title: The Architectural Heritage of Sri Lanka 
Classification No: 72(084.1)

Accession No: 3704 
Author: Anjalendran, Chelvadurai , Robson, David and Sansoni, Dominic

Published Year: 2016 
No. of Pages: 235  
Description: Architect C. Anjalendran, aided by an army of assistants and students, has been recording Sri Lanka's architectural heritage for almost 30 years. The result is a collection of exquisite measured drawings, all made with ink and pencil on tracing paper documenting many interesting and often neglected buildings in Sri Lanka. This book features these, along with photographs and insightful text, to highlight a broad cross-section of buildings of many different types and from many periods from the ancient classical era of Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa, from medieval times, from the colonial period and from the years after Sri Lanka regained its Independence in 1948. The book continues the work of Barbara Sansoni who started to record ancient buildings of Sri Lanka during the early 1950s. With the help of her husband Ronald Lewcock, her photographer son Dominic Sansoni and her friend Anjalendran, she published her drawings in a book called 'The Architecture of an Island' in 1998.

  Book  Title: Beyond Bawa : Modern Masterworks of Monsoon Asia 
Classification No: 72.037 
ISBN: 9780500291566 
Accession No: 3761/3298 
Author: Robson, David 
Publisher: Thames & Hudson 
Published Year: 2014 
No. of Pages: 264 
Description: Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa was among the most influential figures in South Asia in the latter half of the twentieth century. In houses, hotels, public buildings, and perhaps his greatest achievement, his residential complex in Lunuganga, Bawa achieved the harmonious and pleasurable fusion of local building traditions with modern forms. His legacy lives on in current architectural practice and remains an important source of inspiration for generations of architects. Bawa was the principal force behind what is today known globally as “tropical modernism,” and examples of his ideas can be found in Sri Lanka, Singapore, and Bali, and in resorts and residences throughout wider Asia.The book first presents a useful overview of Bawa and his contribution to contemporary architecture. The main section highlights the achievements of twenty-four contemporary architects, ranging from well-known practitioners such as Australian Kerry Hill to local talents such as Sri Lankan Anjalendran. The works they have created over the past ten years reveal the long-lasting significance of Bawa’s approach to building and the landscape.
