Not many books on Geoffrey Bawa out there. This one does a great job of documenting his life and the two projects it focuses on through their evolution. I may be biased, being from the sub-continent and able to relate to the spaces very easily. Also completely in love with mossy tropical gardens, this book takes me to very happy place flipping through it. Go back in time, eliminate all urban noise, radios, TVs, computers etc. add the slow rhythmic chirps and crackles of nature on cool summer afternoon in the shade... you're in heaven! This book can take you down some colonial history too. Not sure how I feel about that but certainly the lives lived by the privileged back then were nothing short of amazing. Today's world can not produce such a style, contextual to its time, environment, abundance and wealth.

A beautiful and romantic book. The two brothers are legendary in their design, because they truely express their passion. The mature garden is awe inspiring.
