The Institute for Maharishi Vedic Architecture held a standing-room-only conference in Fairfield, Iowa, on October 8th, with a roster of excellent speakers, including architects, developers, business people, researchers and residents of homes and offices built according to the principles of Maharishi Vedic Architecture. The Institute for Maharishi Vedic Architecture is planning now to hold future conferences in Washington, DC and on the West Coast. Here are some of the highlights of the conference.
Developer Jeffrey Abramson described the green buildings that he and a handful of the nation's larger developers are now building. These large buildings create a work environment that simultaneously generates happiness and better health among workers, greater productivity for company owners, and a more sustainable use of the earth's resources. And he gave the audience a computer-generated animated view of his next office project, a 200,000 square foot green building designed according to the principles of Maharishi Vedic Architecture.
Abramson also speculated intriguingly on how the founding fathers designed the city of Washington, DC according to principles of Natural Law as they understood them, in order to uphold and promote the nation's newly formed constitution. This perspective on the design of our nation's capital gave a fitting historical context to our current work introducing the full value of Natural Law into the design of America's buildings and cities.
Richard Bialosky, AIA told the compelling story of his journey from a conventional architectural practice, to building responsibly—making homes that truly nourish their inhabitants. Also included were highlights of his forthcoming residential community on the Florida shore, designed according to the principles of Maharishi Vedic Architecture, incorporating healthy house construction, eco-village green technologies, and contemporary community-promoting design concepts.
Michael Sorkin, AIA examined the current climate of urbanism, globalization and sustainability. He concluded that there was great need for a system to bring coherence and order to the urban environment. He described to us the encouragement he felt as he toured Maharishi Vedic City
Dr. Veronica Butler presented her peer-reviewed research on the effects of orientation upon quality of life measurements. Her work is some of the groundbreaking research that is thus far validating the ancient recommendations in the system of Maharishi Vedic Architecture. We will highlight her findings in the next issue of our newsletter.
