We
have
visitedSri
Lanka
to
see
some
works
by
Geoffrey
Bawa
(tqts-zootr,
and I
hadanimpression
that the
essence
of
Bawa's
architecture has
yetto be
discov-ered
by
the
world.
That
is why
we
wouldlike
to
ask
you,
Mr.
Harano,
to
tell
us
aboutthe
kind of
person
that
Bawa was, his
archi-
tecture,
his cultural
background and
the
particularities
of
Sri Lanka,
since
you
havebeen
living in
SriLanka
for
four
years
as
a
member
of
Shigeru
Ban's lab
supervising
construction
sites
of
Ban's
houses,
andbeen
familiar
with
most
of Bawa's
works.
A
Connoisseur of
Location
Yasunori Harano: Initially,
what
launched
Bawa's fame was hotel architecture.

In
thct.
some
hotels
at
Aman
Resorts feature an
island-like
land-
scape set
up on alarge basin
u'ith
nice-
looking
trees
where
you
can take a tour
aroundthem,
or
a tapered swimmingpool
where
you
can
only
see
water
at
its
edge,
orwater
left to
flow
out
like
a
river.
They
are
successful
in
introducing
designs
that
suit
the terrain.
GA:
It's
all
about
finding
the
right
loca-tion. And
Bawa is
very
good
at
it.
Harano:
Yes
he
is.
I
believe
it
is
one
of
Bawa's specialty that
a
project
begins
with
the choice thelocation.
In
otherwords,
he
is
a
connoisseur
oflocation.
