An informative session on Vaastu Shastra for Interior Design Department
Many people believe that Vaastu Shastra only pertains to the design and construction aspects of any place or a building. However, the truth is that it is much applicable to the interior décor of the entire space. A design is not only for the sake of pleasing one’s eye; it should be beneficial for the people staying over there in all manners. We at JD Institute of Fashion Technology believe the importance of design and its value in an individual’s life and address our interior design course students to incorporate the same.
Being the best college for designing in India, we invited Mr Appanna Sridespande, an architect and the developer of the firm – ‘Appanna Nirmala Architecture and associate’ to share his inputs on Vaastu Shastra. He is a pioneer creating designs on the basis of this scientific approach. Expert in the auditorium and industrial design and acquiring Vaastu as the topic of the thesis in his masters, Mr Sridespande is in this field for 44 years. The talk session was based on the different aspects of Vaastu Shastra and how it channels the entire place.
Sharing few life experiences and stories, Mr Sridespande acknowledged our jediiians on how it is necessary to protect and shelter humans with positive energies. Even the position and placement of the fan enhances the growth of a person. He pointed out those interior décor elements like, the colour of the wall, lighting of the rooms, position of the furniture and the placement of the doors which are some of the basic considerations. Each room has different directions and energies and one must be aware of it while designing interiors. The students got familiar with the different energies and how it has to be segregated in different shalas. Even the sun path plays a majority with its contribution to the natural resources of light and heat and the correct measure of it can be derived with the effective placement of products.
Understanding these core elements of Vaastu enlightened our students about the subject and how it is important even in the minute things. The session ended with an interaction Q/A round. This gave a boost to our diploma in interior design students to design for a purpose and serve the needful.
