Architect Jon Lipman, AIA, director of Maharishi Vastu* architecture programmes for North America, spoke recently about the latest developments in this field and news of Vastu building projects across the United States.
He mentioned that the town of Fairfield, Iowa, was recently featured in the prestigious Smithsonian magazine, along with several mentions of Maharishi Vastu architecture. These included one sentence highlighting residents' 'preference for east-facing front doors'—the principle of orientation in Vastu architecture.
Mr Lipman described Smithsonian as 'one of the most beloved, respected, and prestigious magazines in the United States', and predicted that the article will have a great impact in increasing interest in Maharishi Vastu architecture among the public.
Already in the last year there has been an increase in enquiries from the Indo-American community, he said, which would naturally be alert to new developments related to Vedic culture.
In other Vastu news from around the country, several homes have been built in a Maharishi Vastu residential development in Vero Beach, Florida, with more planned; and the infrastructure (roads and utilities) is in place for a Vastu village—Ohio Vedic Homes 'Lake O'Springs' development—of 25 homes in Canton, Ohio, in preparation for being able to offer lots for sale in the near future.
Mr Lipman and other Vastu architects have been deeply involved in creating a new master plan for the Maharishi University of Management campus. Mr Lipman said this is coming 'none too [soon] because the university has been expanding rapidly again in recent years. With 1,300 students [it] is very close to capacity'.
Another way in which Vastu architecture and Maharishi University of Management are connected is through a continuing education course called Vedic Green. The course is offered through the university's Distance Education (E-Learning) department and focuses on giving the knowledge necessary to plan and undertake community projects as well as begin to build a Maharishi Vastu home with natural, non-toxic materials.
* Maharishi Vastu architecture connects individual intelligence with the intelligence of total natural law, bringing nourishing influences to the home, workplace, or entire community. Maharishi Vastu uses ancient Vedic Vastu principles, including those of orientation and proportion, to create this life-supporting effect.
