The conference introduced participants to Maharishi Vastu architecture—ancient principles of proportion, placement, and orientation of buildings and planning—combined with current lifestyle trends including sustainability, community-building, and wellness.
During the conference, building professionals had the opportunity to explore creating their own Vastu architecture communities. Dr. Eike Hartmann, Chair of the Board of Directors of the Institute of Vedic City Planning, and five architects who coordinate Maharishi Vastu projects in regions around the world presented details on various aspects of community design and led master-planning design workshops.
These working groups produced designs for eight Vastu communities being planned for the Middle East and Cyprus.
''This included a group of professionals from Lebanon working together to create four community master plans for that country,'' said Jon Lipman, director of Maharishi Vastu architecture in North America.
The conference took place in the Istanbul Peace Palace, a building designed according to Maharishi Vastu principles.
After the conference, attendees enjoyed a boat ride on the Bosporus and the Sea of Marmara, as well as a tour of the historic old center of Istanbul, one of the world's ancient, vibrant cities.
The next Vastu conference is planned for Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia.
