Lecture: ‘Pioneers of Modern Architecture and Design since Independence in Sri Lanka’ with C. Anjalendran
9 February Friday, 6–7.30pm
Architect and educator C. Anjalendran speaks from his long-term research on Modern Architecture and Design in Sri Lanka, and how these disciplines have been shaped by pioneers including Minnette De Silva (1918–1998). Anjalendran’s practice and research address immediate concerns of postcolonial Sri Lankan architecture followed by the circumstances of the civil war, which many architects of the time had to negotiate.
This Lecture is offered as part of the Public Programmes of the exhibition ‘88 Acres: The Watapuluwa Housing Scheme by Minnette De Silva’, on view until 7 July 2024.
