The Sri Lanka Gardens
Publication Date: April 2009
The work of architect Geoffrey Bawa achieved a unique fusion of vernacular style, modern construction, and the tropical landscape of Sri Lanka. Although his architectural work and its influence have been well documented, less attention has been paid to his work on gardens. His most famous garden is the one he created for himself at his estate, Lunuganga, and it is matched only by the nearby garden of his brother, Bevis, who was also an architect and designer.
