Geoffrey Bawa embarked on rather unorthodox professional routes, having started his working life as a lawyer, and made a risky, but impressive career switch at age 32, to the architectural field. Envisioning a transformation of his abandoned rubber estate in Lunuganga, Ceylon, from a tropical wilderness to an Italian Garden propelled this sudden shift, and by the age of 38, he had found his own architectural characteristics, fusing primordial sentiments with modernity, and east with west. Remaining faithful to Sri Lankan building traditions whilst experimenting with more abstract forms paved a new school of thought in the architectural arena; Many of Asia’s most beautiful buildings derive inspiration from Bawa’s style, a nostalgic, antecedent quality though while archetypically Asian, transcends to convey the hasty developments of a modern era, a quality that is quintessentially Bawa.

We are delighted to announce that some of Bawa’s original drawings, including pictures of his most esteemed designs, are now on display at our gallery, at 59 – 61 Kim Yam Road. For furhter information or artwork enquiry, please contact +65 6339 0678 or enquiry@ipreciation.com
