Following the a+u 11:06 issue on Geoffrey Bawa, that featured the architect’s masterpieces and his lasting influence over generations, this November issue examines the works of emerging, new Sri Lankan architects. The issue begins with an essay written by Sean Anderson, Associate Curator in the Department of Architecture and Design at MoMA, which describes how early practices by pioneering architects have coped with the political economy of colonialism to bring about the modern, regional architecture of the tropics. It is not until the year 1969 that Sri Lanka started its own local architecture schools, which taught new generations of architects who continue to challenge the limits of tradition and shape their country’s architecture identity. Together with Channa Daswatte, architect at the MICD Associates and Trustee of the Geoffrey Bawa Trust and the Lunuganga Trust, 19 projects are selected and structured into 3 topics that reflect the architecture of contemporary Sri Lanka relevant to its economic, social, cultural situation today.

ja+u is the fusion of two of our company’s English magazines: JA (the Japan Architect) and a+u (Architecture & Urbanism). Thus, our editorial concept not only introduces the latest architecture from within Japan to the outside world, we also present high-quality works judiciously gathered from across the globe.

In collaboration with our Japanese-language titles – Shinkenchiku (New Architecture) and Jutakutokushu (Special Housing) – ja+u uniquely offers an insider's look at the very latest Japanese architecture. The company shoots nearly all its own photography within Japan and maintains an extensive photographic archive.

ja+u (Japan Architecture + Urbanism) was founded in 2012 in Tokyo. The website is owned by Shinkenchiku-sha Co., Ltd., Japan’s definitive architectural publisher.
