Architectural Gems of Geoffrey Bawa
Few countries can point to such an influential figure in the development of a stylish and successful tourist sector than can Sri Lanka with Geoffrey Bawa. Bawa was responsible for linking Sri Lanka’s ancient and modern architecture. He had a deep understanding and appreciation of the country’s cultural heritage from the ancient kingdoms of Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa, to the influences of the Portuguese and Dutch periods and his travels worldwide also ensured an appreciation of more contemporary styles.
This specialist tour has been put together to enable those interested in architectural design to experience the works of Bawa while staying in the hotels designed by him, as well as this island’s ancient architectural heritage and natural landscapes that influenced his creations.
