Geoffrey Bawa

"Architecture cannot be totally explained but must be experienced"

"Every artist works on a different scale. A page. A painting. A sonata. A film. A novel. A house. A garden. But essentially they all create, in some ways, self-portraits of themselves. Art is a long intimacy. The scale of the achievement might be grand and take years but it has to be personal and carefully pieced together and specific to its culture"

(Micheal Ondaatje, on Lunuganga)
