The continuing success of the Invincible America Assembly as well as the arrival of Vedic Pandits is spurring an expansion of building in Maharishi Vedic City, USA. Mayor Robert Wynne, Raja of Vedic America, is overseeing all construction.
Initially Jon Lipman and Martin Brodeur, the construction project leaders, planned to build 1,000 homes in villages of 'marble peace colonies' built in an innovative way from factory-cast panels. The arrival of the Vedic Pandits has given further impetus to this project as well as creating additional needs.
Mr. Lipman said the priority now is also constructing mandaps, which are specially designed buildings for Pandits to carry out performances of Maharishi Vedic Technologies for World Peace.
According to Mr. Brodeur, who is leading the development of the unique technology for the cast panels, the homes will be built according to the principles of Maharishi Sthåpatya Veda(SM) design and will have a beautiful, ornate appearance.
'They will have the sparkle of marble,' Mr. Brodeur said. 'The buildings will be very dimensional; they'll have a lot of character and detail and look like they're carved because Vedic ornamentation will be cast into the panels. And they'll also be comfortable and very cost-effective.'
The interiors will be warm and inviting due to the use of a clay-plaster that includes a fine marble powder mix. The interior appearance can be varied to give the look of either a painted or stained finish or a travertine surface. The unique design also means the buildings will be well insulated with the clay-plaster interior, creating a natural homeostasis in the way it absorbs and desorbs moisture and humidity, thereby preventing mold.
