About This Book

The late Geoffrey Bawa's most famous garden is at his estate in Sri Lanka, Lunuganga, and it is rivalled only by Brief, the lesser-known garden of his brother, Bevis. Evolving over several decades, these two gardens and their outbuildings and sculptures represent highpoints of tropical design in which architecture and landscape are intimately mixed. This volume includes an overview of the Sri Lanka's rich horticultural tradition and the social background that inspired the Bawas. It is followed by chapters that explore and celebrate the brothers' relationship and the architectural soul of Brief and Lunuganga through superb photo essays and descriptions, revealing the aesthetics and architectural mastery of the creators as well as the stunning context of Sri Lanka itself. Also included are directions on how to get to Brief and Lunuganga, a bibliography and a glossary.
