A new video explains the compatible nature of sustainable building and Maharishi Vastu (Vedic architecture) through the model of the Sustainable Living Center on the campus of Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA.

A post on the news blog of the Maharishi Vastu Architecture website highlights the new video and notes that 'the building is attracting a wide range of attention worldwide—from the Mayor of Des Moines, Iowa, to architects and sustainable building experts around the world. It will open up a new phase in institutional construction techniques.'

The Sustainable Living Center will set a new standard for green building in America by being completely off the grid with respect to electricity, heating and cooling, water, and waste, and will be the first of its kind on any campus anywhere in the world.

The building will also be unique because it will be the first to combine the Living Building Challenge—the highest standard for sustainable design and green building in the world—with the standards of LEED Platinum certification, Building Biology, and Maharishi Vastu Architecture.

The Center will serve students in the university's Sustainable Living major. It has been designed as a 'building that teaches'. In addition to embodying sustainability, it will allow students to monitor performance and energy efficiency and make adjustments.

In the video, Construction Manager Dal Loiselle talks about the Sustainable Living Center and its combination of ancient and modern, and what the building demonstrates for sustainability and the future of construction.
