EL CROQUIS 212: Palinda Kannangara 2005-2021

The award-winning Sri Lankan architectural firm led by Palinda Kannangara ( (> Biography) is known for an experiential architecture that hinges on simplicity and connection with the natural environment. Its work has been recognised for a personalised approach, contextual sensitivity, experimental material use, and a minimalism reflective of the Sri Lankan ethos. Started in 2005, Kannangara’s practice often works on small-scale projects which connect with the region, climate, and landscape using locally available materials and technology. This issue features twelve works, including several houses, a wellness retreat, holiday bungalows, an artist’s retreat, and staff quarters for a wind power plant.
