Feng Shui, Cosmic Numerology and Other Traditional Proportional Systems
These proportional systems often incorporate other common proportional systems, and illustrate an integrated view of proportion, and mysticism. The proportions of a building can be read with these systems to determine the spiritual "meaning" and "value" of the building.
Feng Shui is based on the module of a (doubled) tatami mat, and a number of rules governing the placement of elements within a building. The discussion of the various elements of Feng Shui are far beyond the scope of this project.
