Geoffrey Manning Bawa

Influenced by colonial and traditional Ceylonese architecture, Bawa’s designs embraced the essence of modernism and cultural integration. Collaborating with Danish architect Ulrik Plesner, he created iconic structures that showcased his belief in site-specific design and indigenous materials. Notably, Bawa’s influence extended beyond Sri Lanka, leaving an indelible mark on the global architectural landscape.
