Domus Sri Lanka Cover

NOVEMBER 15 - DECEMBER 15 2016 Issue

This issue of Domus features the Hill of the Buddha by Tadao Ando and his team of architects who have enclosed a giant statue of the Buddha in a unique design that has become a part of the landscape. During each season the property takes a different look but the spirituality of the place remains.

The Architects of St. Angela’s College in Cork, Ireland, faced with difficulties of site and context, devised a solution where old and new buildings were positioned in different levels, creating a hill-town with lanes and terraced courts.

In Confetti is featured Professor Miki Desai’s exhibition on Indian vernacular architecture held at the Moratuwa University. Also featured are articles on the urban spaces in Mouraria Square, Lisbon, Portugal and Brussels, Belgium.

Feedback takes a look at the unique architecture of the hill station, Nuwara Eliya.
