Prof. Hejduk’s “Tower for Musician and Painter” in Berlin may sound good on paper and look good in photos, but it does not work in practice from a Feng Shui perspective.
By locating the main and the tallest tower in the middle of the “Ming Tang” (open space formed by the lower buildings to the left and right), the heart is blocked and the “Sheng Qi” cannot be assembled and as a result the residents cannot enjoy the otherwise sunny and protected space at the front. A good lesson to learn to keep the Ming Tang open and free.
But this problem can easily be fixed with a well-placed courtyard wall….
We say in Feng Shui, “When the host is tall and powerful, the guests have to embrace him tightly (4 sides) but generously (a clear boundary for the Ming Tang space) to enhance “Qing” (love and affection) by gathering the Sheng Qi (Ju Qi).”
“Ju Qi, Ju Qing”.
