FENG SHUI in Architecture

What are the main steps of a Feng Shui Architecture evaluation?

In medical practice, a good diagnosis of the symptoms is fundamental for a successful cure. Similarly, in Feng Shui a correct analysis, or evaluation, is the starting point for a proper upgrading.

During the analysis, we first observe the landscape surrounding the property, also defined as the 'Big Environment'. To do this we observe the flow of Chi in the landscape and, whether it is a beautiful garden or a hectic city, we make sure the building receives the most beneficial energy. Landscape design features are then suggested to be used to eliminate disturbances from inauspicious sources.

Secondly, the interior is analyzed to ensure a proper flow of Chi in every room of the house, and avoid stagnation and depletion. This is called Small Environment. This process is similar to the regulation of Chi flow in the body during an acupuncture session, except that no needles are used. At this stage, the furniture layout is important and we recommend appropriate design features for better results.

The third phase is the most critical. The Chi components are analyzed in detail. As white light passing through a prism is divided into the electromagnetic spectrums colors, so the flow of Chi is divided into branches of energy vibrating at different frequencies.

This process of analysis shows whether a site's energetic field is balanced or unbalanced by using the geomancer compass to find the magnetic pole, establish the building's orientation and combining this information with others derived by knowing the date of construction of the building.

Then, we advice on natural material objects and colors belonging to any missing energy frequency that can be introduced to recreate the harmony. This analysis is applied to every room of the house to ensure total balance.

The fourth phase involves the compatibility of the building with its inhabitants. We pay more detailed attention to space and color, as well as bed and desk orientation, favoring the options most beneficial to the inhabitants.

The results of such an evaluation will create detailed guidelines involving furniture layout and interior design in the case of an existing building, and spatial planning, design development advice and job site visits during construction for new projects or remodeling.

A common idea is that Feng Shui is divided into several schools. The best known are the 'Form' School and 'Compass' School. This is a division created in modern days, but, in fact, Traditional Yang Sang Feng Shui includes them all. When you observe the 'Big' and the 'Small' environment you apply the teaching of the 'Form' School, while studying the magnetic field you apply the 'Compass' School formulas.
