A representative figure of architecture in Sri Lanka Geoffrey Bawa was a virtuoso in the art of crafting a ‘paradise’. The works that he created until his death in 2003 have been an inspiration to architects not only in Sri Lanka but throughout Asian countries. Born in 1919 Bawa was a crossbreed, an embodiment of Sri Lanka’s history at the crossroads of Europe and Asia. This publication focuses on two of his own houses: his regular house in Colombo and his country house in Bentota.
