Led by the input of Asanga Welikala and in collaboration with Channa Daswatta, ‘Corridors of Power’ through architectural drawings and models, interrogates key moments in Sri Lanka’s constitutional evolution since 1972.

The output on display includes large format drawings, 3D flyovers, sketches and physical models reflecting power dynamics enshrined in the the 1972 and 1978 constitutions, as well as the 13th, 18th and 19th Amendments.

The exhibition was conceptualised and curated by Sanjana Hattotuwa, whose note on it can be read at

Join Sanjana to walk through the exhibition and critically engage with the artefacts, learning about the concepts that drove the production of the material and the politics behind the architecture.

The tour will terminate with a Q&A session with Sanjana, and lead into the evening’s keynote or panel discussion.
