Geoffrey Bawa is widely considered one of South Asia’s most influential modern architects. In The Genius of the Place, director Afdhel Aziz introduces us to five of Bawa’s projects through his own personal connection to the work. We encounter an ocean fortress, a jungle palace, groundbreaking private homes, and the country estate where Bawa’s ashes are buried. In each location, we connect with “the genius of the place,” the unique spiritual energy that Bawa used as inspiration.
