Following a+u 11:06 issue on Geoffrey Bawa that featured the architect’s masterpieces with his lasting influence over generations, this book examines the works of these emerging, new Sri Lankan architects. Beginning with an essay written by Sean Anderson, Associate Curator in the Department of Architecture and Design at MoMA, it describes the scene of how early practices by pioneering architects cope with the political economy of colonialism at the time to bring about modern regional architecture of the tropics. It is not until the year 1969, Sri Lanka started their own local architecture schools which taught new generations of architects who continue to challenge the limits of tradition and shape their country’s architecture identity. Together with Channa Daswatte, architect at the MICD Associates and Trustee of the Geoffrey Bawa Trust and the Lunuganga Trust, 19 projects are selected and structured into 3 topics that reflect the architecture of contemporary Sri Lanka relevant to its economic, social, cultural situation today.
