In our first event as the organisers of Open House Colombo, The Geoffrey Bawa Trust explores the work of five architectural practices responsible for shaping the contemporary architectural language of Sri Lanka. The programme unlocks buildings by Justin Samarasekera, Minnette de Silva, Geoffrey Bawa, Panini Tennekoon and Valentine Gunasekara to understand the distinctive responses of these contemporaries in architecture, working in a shared context and responding to the specificities of Sri Lanka at the time.

The two-day event will also mark the launch of an enhanced Wikipedia page for each architect and their practices.
