Lunuganga was the ultimate architectural laboratory for the great architect Geoffrey Bawa.
The tour will commence with a small exhibition of his work followed by a walk around the garden of Lunuganga.
Channa Daswatte, himself a great architect, will explain how the garden may have played a role in some of the ideas embedded in Bawa’s work. This walk will also take in the iconic Ena de Silva House, one of Bawa’s finest creations – which it took the Bawa Trust over six years and Rs. 30 million to relocate from its original home to the Bawa Estate.
The tour is followed by Lunuganga’s legendary rice and curry lunch.
