Groundviews is pleased to announce the ‘Corridors of Power’, a path-breaking project marrying constitutional reform and theory with architecture, is a finalist in Fast Company’s World Changing Ideas 2017 awards, under the Urban Design category.

As noted online, “Fast Company sifted through more than 1,000 truly impressive entries to find the ones our panel of judges thought were the best combination of creative problem solving and potential to change our world for the better. [Fast Company] crowned 12 winners–along with 192 finalists.”

Conceived of and curated by Sanjana Hattotuwa, in close collaboration with leading constitutional theorist Asanga Welikala and renowned architect Channa Daswatte, ‘Corridors of Power’ through architectural drawings and models, interrogates Sri Lanka’s constitutional evolution since 1972.

The exhibits include large format drawings, 3D flyovers, sketches and models reflecting the power dynamics enshrined in the the 1972 and 1978 constitutions, as well as the 13th, 18th and 19th Amendments….
