FENG SHUI | An Architect Explains

FENG SHUI is an ancient and mystical Chinese art, in use for thousands of years. When a building is raised on the Earth, it affects the natural flow of energies and can create an imbalance in the surroundings. Feng Shui aims at restoring the natural balance in a person and in his surroundings and creates positive energy around his home. So, in that sense, Feng Shui is very similar to the Indian building science, “Vaastu Shastra” as they have the same goal – to create balance and a positive environment.feng shui 1
