Bawa’s Lunuganga GardensBack
This morning you will be introduced to the life and times of the late Geoffrey Bawa, one of Sri Lanka’s most renowned architects. Your guide for the day will be a staff member of Lunuganga who will guide you through the beautiful tropical modernist countryside home of Bawa.
Geoffrey Bawa is Sri Lanka’s most prolific and influential architect. His work has had a tremendous impact upon architecture throughout Asia and is unanimously acclaimed by connoisseurs of architecture worldwide. Every turn and every bend in Bawa’s country home is an interesting experience – with so many exotic plants and trees and views to take in throughout the distinct homes and garden. The house itself is sparse but beautiful, full of impressive paintings and photographs of a bygone age. You have the option of sitting down to have some tea and biscuits.
