Lunuganga is considered today, as being one of the great private gardens of the Twentieth century. It is now administered by the Lunuganga Trust and can be visited by prior appointment. Lunuganga, is the enchanting creation of the Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa. He transformed an abandoned rubber estate in Southwest Sri Lanka, and created a series of carefully orchestrated, mystical gardens - a place of varying moods and sensations. This book contains a series of stunning black and white photographs, taken by two of Bawa's closest friends - Christoph Bon and Dominic Sansoni. The text in the book is by Geoffrey Bawa himself, offering an exciting insight into this charismatic architect's innovative way of thinking.

Geoffrey Bawa was born in Sri Lanka, in 1919. He trained as a lawyer and later as an architect at the Architectural Association in London in 1957. In a career which extended over four decades, he built many memorable projects, establishing himself as one of the most important Asian architects of his generation. He died in 2003. In 2001 he was awarded the Aga Khan Special Award for Architecture, and in 2004 his achievements were celebrated in a retrospective exhibition at the German Architecture Museum in Frankfurt. Christoph Bon was born in Switzerland in 1921. He studied architecture at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich and was a founding member of Chamberlin, Powell and Bon - the British architectural practice which was responsible for building London's Barbican development.
