On 15 June 2005 Global Good News reported:
World Peace Herald Online news draws on the worldwide resources of The Washington Times, United Press International, Tiempos del Mundo, Middle East Times, and others to report the most significant international news developments that affect peace. The site posted the recent Washington Times article on plans in Washington DC to construct a $250 million 'green' business complex using the principles of Vedic Architecture.
It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring
fulfilment to the field of business.
According to the article by Tom Ramsack, Vedic Architecture was introduced to the United States ten years ago by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who also introduced the Transcendental Meditation Programme to the West.
The announcement of the project came from Tower Companies, the biggest developer of green buildings in the Washinton DC area. This will be their biggest project to date.
The article described some of the basic principles of Vedic Archetecture that would be used, including creating an open space in the centre of each building, orienting the buildings toward the east, and using mathematical formulas to ensure symmetry with nature.
In addition to using principles of Vedic Architecture, the buildings will be environmentally friendly with non-toxic materials and energy-efficient technologies.
While Vedic Architecture has been used in private homes, 'These principles have never been brought to the corporate world,' according to Jeffrey Abramson, partner in the Tower Companies.
The article also quoted Richard Bialosky, an architect trained in Maharishi Vedic Architecture, as saying that Vedic Architecture involves 'ancient principles of orientation and placement that are really independent of style'. Bialosky is designing a 104-unit residential village in Vero Beach, Florida, using Vedic Architecture.
Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total
Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
