Bawa Staircases

$50.00

Bawa Staircases is a compelling addition to the works on the architectural legacy of Sri Lanka’s preeminent architect, Geoffrey Bawa.

Aimed at students, professionals and his numerous admirers, Bawa Staircases focuses on his fascination with staircases through the ages and how Bawa incorporated these elemental features into his innumerable designs — residential, public works and hotel and resort architecture.

MAIN SELLING POINTS:

  • It showcases how staircases provide buildings and gardens with not only efficient horizontal and vertical movement, but also the opportunity of ever-changing vistas, many imbued with arcane religious or cultural significance.
  • The first book to focus on Geoffrey Bawa’s interest in European architectural movements, especially influences from the Italian Renaissance and German Baroque, written fluently and compassionately by the maestro’s official biographer.
  • Elegant, serene photography that combines architectural significance with the beauty of Sri Lanka’s and Europe’s heritage
