Vastu Architecture by Michael Borden Pdf

This book about the science of Vastu was written as a simple and clear, yet detailed exposition on the knowledge and basic technical applications for the design of secular Vastu buildings - such as homes and offices. 'Vastu Architecture' provides the reader with a nuts and bolts explanation of how to create a solid structure that is in resonance with Earth, Cosmic and Divine energies. Being a fully illustrated book, with around 100 simple, clear and easy to interpret drawings; the book is very accessible to a general audience and does not require any background knowledge in architectural design. Also included are two complete floor plans that can be tailored for specific individuals in accordance with their birth stars. Many other books about Vastu do not include an explanation of the technical knowledge of Vastu science, and if they do, they often present only a partial, or an altogether incorrect account thereof. This is not the case with 'Vastu Architecture', as its technically rich, yet layman-accessible knowledge base provides the reader with all of the basic requirements to create a Vastu structure, including a very clear chapter on how to use the Ayadi Calculations to get the Sacred Dimensions of a building. This is not, however, a coffee table book, it is rather a manual for the construction of special havens for the soul. Also see the supplemental book in this series: Vastu Architecture: Project Plans and Illustrations, Vol. 1, by the same author.

Indian Architectural Theory by Vibhuti Chakrabarti Pdf

In this ground-breaking study the traditional Indian science of architecture and house-building, Vastu Vidya, is explored in terms of its secular uses, at the levels of both theory and contemporary practice. Vastu Vidya is treated as constituting a coherent and complete architectural programme, still of great relevance today. Chakrabarti draws on an impressive amount of textual material, much of it only available in Sanskrit, and presents several extremely valuable illustrations in support of the theories expounded. Each chapter deals with one architectural aspect, and chapters are divided into three sections. For each aspect, the first section explains the prescriptions of the traditional texts; the second section deals with the rather arbitrary use of that aspect by contemporary Indian architects trained in the western manner but striving to relate to Indian roots; while the last section in each chapter explores the selected use of that particular aspect by contemporary Vastu pundits, with their disregard for architectural idiom

Eco-architecture III by Santiago Hernández Pdf

This book contains most of the papers presented in the Eco-Architecture 2010 conference, which was the third edition of the International Conference on Harmonisation between Architecture and Nature. Previous editions, that were very successful were held previously in the New Forest, UK, in 2006 and the Algarve, Portugal in 2008 and demonstrated the importance of a forum like this to discuss the characteristics and challenges of such architectural vision. Eco-Architecture implies a new approach to the design process intended to harmonise its products with nature. This involves ideas such as minimum use of energy at each stage of the building process, taking into account the amount required during the extraction and transportation of materials, their fabrication, assembly, building erection, maintenance and eventual future recycling. Presentations in the conference were related to topics like building technologies, design by passive systems, design with nature, ecological and cultural sensitivity, life cycle assessment, quantifying sustainability in architecture, resources and rehabilitation, and issues from education, research and practice. Case studies from different places around the world were also presented.

VASTU - DISCRIMINATE-OBSOLETE-FRADULENT by N.SHANKARAPPA Pdf

The word Vastu has become synonym for the intellectual degradation of Indian mind. Vastushastra which was in oblivion for thousands of years was salvaged to lime light a few decades ago. The Vastushastra which is descriminitive at its roots , obsolete in time and fraudulent in practice became contagious spreading from metropolitan cities to remote villages. It is very saddening that Vastushastra is thriving through the nurturing of the well educated class of India under the guise of ancient building science which was developed by great seers& sages to lead fruitful life on earth. Each and every success and failure , joys and pains of an individual are recognized through Vastu compliance of his/her house. The basic life experiences which provided the courage and inspiration to face the vagaries of one’s life are condemned and taken over by Vastu compliance. In this age of science Vastushastra has devoured both literate and illiterate , uraban and rural population without any difference. The print and electronic media have become the vehicles of pseudoscience of Vastushastra bringing the fear that Indians may be losing their rationality. At this if juncture if we do not bring back the rationality of thinking , the life of common man will be in hands of Vastu pandits and experts mocking the intellectual maturity of Indian mind. In this book Author has shown in detail how Vastushastra is discriminative through its interwoven Varna (caste) system in building houses and obsolete for modern living. The fraudulent way of using Vastu by conman by pseudoscientific explanations to fleece the gullible public is highlighted. The evolution of Indian temples independent of Vastuhastra , the contrast between modern Architecture , Civil engineering are discussed in elaborate in the book.

Architecture and Mathematics from Antiquity to the Future by Kim Williams,Michael J. Ostwald Pdf

Every age and every culture has relied on the incorporation of mathematics in their works of architecture to imbue the built environment with meaning and order. Mathematics is also central to the production of architecture, to its methods of measurement, fabrication and analysis. This two-volume edited collection presents a detailed portrait of the ways in which two seemingly different disciplines are interconnected. Over almost 100 chapters it illustrates and examines the relationship between architecture and mathematics. Contributors of these chapters come from a wide range of disciplines and backgrounds: architects, mathematicians, historians, theoreticians, scientists and educators. Through this work, architecture may be seen and understood in a new light, by professionals as well as non-professionals. Volume I covers architecture from antiquity through Egyptian, Mayan, Greek, Roman, Medieval, Inkan, Gothic and early Renaissance eras and styles. The themes that are covered range from symbolism and proportion to measurement and structural stability. From Europe to Africa, Asia and South America, the chapters span different countries, cultures and practices.

From Bharata to India by M. K. Agarwal Pdf

The origin of world civilization can be traced to the Sindhu and Sarasvati river valleys (located in present-day Pakistan) as early as 8,000 BC. Here, innovation and originality in every aspect of human endeavor, from mathematics and science to art and sports, flourished. Yet the importance of this civilization, known as the Vedic period, has been deliberately downplayed. Thoroughly researched and including an extensive bibliography, From Bharata to India rectifies this mistake in the perspective of world history and seeks to offer a comprehensive reference source. Author M. K. Agarwal shows how this early culture, where ideation by enlightened philosopher Brahmin kings, brought material and spiritual wealth that was to remain unchallenged until the colonial era. This Vedic-Hindu-Buddhist legacy subsequently influenced peoples and paradigms around the globe, ushering in an era of peace and plenty thousands of years before the Europeans. By using original sources in Sanskirt as well as regional literature, Agarwal compares corresponding situations in other civilizations within the context of their own literary traditions and records to prove that Bharata forms the basis of world civilization. This is in direct contrast to the "Greek or Arab miracle" hypothesis put forth by numerous scholars. The first of two volumes in this series, From Bharata to India offers a fascinating, in-depth glimpse into ancient India's contribution to the modern world.
