Purchase a copy of the ‘Second Volume’

Second Volume

‘Second Volume’ is the MMCA Sri Lanka’s first research publication. It is conceived to accompany the exhibition ‘88 Acres: The Watapuluwa Housing Scheme by Minnette De Silva’ (2024), and is endorsed by World Monuments Fund. The book continues the archival process begun by De Silva with her posthumously published autobiography ‘The Life and Work of an Asian Woman Architect Vol. 1’ (1998). Similar in format, this publication in contrast focuses on the Watapuluwa Housing Scheme in Kandy designed by De Silva between 1954–1958. ‘Second Volume’ brings together primary research, new archival materials, and photographs that are being published for the first time.
