Feng Shui Duty of Buildings

“We require from buildings two kinds of goodness: first, the doing their practical duty well: then that they be graceful and pleasing in doing it.”  John Ruskin

What is the duty of a building

What is a buildings practical duty? Of course on the most basic level it is to shelter. To protect from hot and cold, wind and rain, from enemies and animals, that much is obvious. But can the practical duty of a building go beyond the basics?  Feng Shui requires more. What is the feng shui duty of a building?

What type of building

Whether it be a grand residence, humble home, corporate office, retail shop, factory, school or any other type of building, its Feng Shui duty should also provide for the physical and emotional health of its occupants. It should supply a space that enhances creativity and allows for rational thinking.  It should foster great relationships, be that employees and clients, or family and friends.

Balance and harmony

In being graceful and pleasing it should offer a space where people can enjoy relaxation and community or work efficiently and with purpose. Harmony and balance is the goal.

Accomplished Buildings

How does a building acheive these goals and fulfill its duty? When a building is designed and placed to receive the best quality energy and allows this energy to flow to important locations it can acheive its duty and help you acheive your goals in the process.
