Geoffrey Bawa - the Complete Works

Author(s): David Robson

Architecture

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.
