Anjalendran: Architect of Sri Lanka
This product is shipped via the most economical route and is estimated to be delivered within 2-3 weeks of placing your order.
This beautifully illustrated book showcases the works of one of Sri Landa’s most influential architects-Anjaledran, an ethnic Tamil and visionary artist. During the past 25 years of civil war in Sri Lanka, Anjalendran has stayed on, creating architecture that has attracted interest across the entire Indian subcontinent. In Anjalendran, David Robson explores this unique man and his uncommon vision. Anjalendran’s buildings have a simple directness, and although totally modern in spirit, they acknowledge the rich design traditions of Sri Lanka. Whether working with ample budgets or at rock bottom cost (like his SOS Children’s Village orphanages), his work focuses not only on creative buildings, but-a la Frank Lloyd Wright-also their landscaping, furniture and decoration. Just as interesting as the architecture is the process by which Anjalendran works-:from home, never employing more than four student assistants, with no office, no secretary, no car and no cell phone. He operates without a bank account and has never signed a contract with either a client or a builder. With stunning color photographs, plan details and behind-the-scenes insights, Anjalendran sheds light on the works of this exceptional man.
