Edition of 50 of which this is an out of sequence “Special Gift Edition” inscribed by Wijaya. This work grew out of a report by students of the University of Sydney during a holiday design programme in Bali to which Wijaya was the tutor. “Most of the photographs were taken over the six months April – October, 1984. The selection is comprehensive in that it covers the full spectrum of Balinese Architecture — mountain to coastal, north to south, palatial to makeshift..” (from preface) Made Wijaya (born in Sydney as Michael White, 1953-2016) was a landscape architect who left Sydney for Bali as a break from architectural studies at University of Sydney and stayed, immersing himself in the Balinese culture, consorting with royalty, and in 1975 was renamed Made Wijaya by a priest in a Hindu temple ceremony.
