Features contemporary works from new and emerging Sri Lankan architects
Introduction by Sean Anderson, Associate Curator at MoMA
Presents 19 projects selected by Channa Daswatte, examining Sri Lanka's present economic, social, and cultural situations
Following a+u 11:06 issue on Geoffrey Bawa featuring the architect's timeless and influential masterpieces, this November issue examines the works of emerging Sri Lankan architects. Beginning with an essay 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 thrive within the economy of colonialism at the time to bring about modern regional architecture of the tropics. It was not until 1969 when Sri Lanka started their own local architecture schools, teaching new generations of architects to challenge the limits of tradition and shape their own local architecture identity.
Together with Channa Daswatte, architect of the MICD Associates and Trustee of the Geoffrey Bawa Trust and the Lunuganga Trust, 19 projects are selected and structured into 3 topics reflecting the architecture of contemporary Sri Lanka relevant to today's economic, social, and cultural situations.
