The Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa (1919-2003) fused sensitivity for local context with the technological discoveries and design principles of modernism in his work. Gathering essays by scholars and writers across a multitude of disciplines - including architecture, photography, geography, urban design and art history - this volume spotlights the beautiful architectural drawings of Bawa's practice. Illustrated with more than 200 drawings and photographs, many of which have never been published, the book delves into the central, multipronged role of the medium in Bawa's work, from ideation to instruction to postconstruction review. Through the context of the archive, the anthology also explores the identity of postindependence Sri Lanka, looking at the interplay between ideas and images, drawings and buildings and, above all, a sense of place.
