Bawa ; the Sri Lanka gardens

Anglais Bawa ; the Sri Lanka gardens



This is a story of two brothers, Geoffrey and Bevis Bawa, and their exquisite gardens, Lunuganga and Brief, set in the lush tropical landscape of Sri Lanka. It begins with a largely photographic overview of the country's natural features, showing the varied palette of landscapes that inspired Bawa's sensitive treatment of architecture. At the very heart of the book is an intimate portrait of two gloriously detailed gardens and the personalities that brought them into being. But it is also a story about the nature and landscape of an island of exceptional beauty. As such, the book has something to offer followers of Geoffrey Bawa, tropical-garden enthusiasts and to all those seeking a photographic portrait of Sri Lanka.
