This superbly illustrated publication showcases the works of 1 of Sri Landa's so much influential architects—Anjaledran, an ethnic Tamil and visionary artist.

During the prior 25 years of civil struggle in Sri Lanka, Anjalendran has stayed on, developing structure that has attracted curiosity around the whole Indian subcontinent. In Anjalendran, David Robson explores this precise guy and his unusual imaginative and prescient. Anjalendran's constructions have an easy directness and even though absolutely glossy in spirit, they recognize the wealthy layout traditions of Sri Lanka. no matter if operating with plentiful budgets or at all-time low fee (like his SOS kid's Village orphanages), his paintings focuses not just on inventive structures, but—:a l. a. Frank Lloyd Wright—:also their landscaping, furnishings and decoration.

Just as fascinating because the structure is the method through which Anjalendran works—:from domestic, by no means applying greater than 4 pupil assistants, without place of work, no secretary, no automobile and no cellular phone. He operates and not using a checking account and hasn't ever signed a freelance with both a consumer or a builder. With beautiful colour pictures, plan information and behind-the-scenes insights, Anjalendran sheds gentle at the works of this extraordinary man.
