About the Author
AUTHOR Made Wijaya was born in Sydney, Australia. He arrived in Bali in 1973, having jumped ship and swum ashore in a rainstorm. A student of architecture, he intended the visit as a short break from his studies, but his fascination with Bali's rich culture and tradition led him to stay. A recognized authority on tropical gardens and architecture, he has published several books, including The Complete Stranger in Paradise and Architecture of Bali: a source book of traditional and modern forms. He contributed to Tropical Asian Style and was the main author of a pocket guidebook to Bali. Made Wijaya also lectures on landscape design at the National University of Singapore, encouraging a new generation of architects and designers to view the making of tropical gardens as an art form.
