The paper puts forward a broadly postcolonial method for engaging with landscapes in southern Sri Lanka. Landscapes risk dissimulating the politics of places as they are produced and lived contextually. This argument is worked through a critical engagement of the landscape architecture of a tropical-modernist architect (G. Bawa). The A. shows how some of the familiar concept-metaphors (nature, religion, subjectivity) hold particular kinds of landscape politics that emerge from human relationships with the environment
