About Geoffrey Bawa Trust

The Geoffrey Bawa Trust in Colombo, Sri Lanka, is a non-profit, public trust that was established in 1982 by the late architect, with the objectives of furthering the fields of Architecture, the Fine Arts and Ecological and Environmental Studies. Since the architect’s passing in 2003, the Trust has sustained year-round public programmes comprising lectures, educational tours, scholarships, residencies and exhibitions which engage broader discourse on the built environment and the arts in both Sri Lanka and overseas. We manage and maintain four historic projects by the late architect; his home in Colombo – Number 11, his garden in Bentota – Lunuganga, the Ena de Silva house, and the de Saram house, as well as the collections and archives they hold.

About Institutional Membership

Institutional membership is available to museums, collections and organizations that are of museological relevance and have been open to the public for more than 5 years. They should be not for profit. They should demonstrate an appropriate governance structure in accordance with the ICOM definition of a museum, with key museum functions (collection, conservation, research, exhibition and mediation) undertaken by professionals.

Please read CIMAM’s membership criteria.

Thank you Geoffrey Bawa Trust for joining CIMAM!
