Architecture is part of our being. Costa Rican architects should copy and comprehend nature When we surround ourselves with Yin energy, we feel the direct effects of negative ionization absorbed in our skin and lungs, experienced as clarity and peace. Negative ionization is found in crashing waves, on the beach, at a lakes edge or in a forest. In our environment, Yin energy and its function is to attract and absorb moisture, to promote growth, vitality and expand diversity. Yin energy is generally found on northern slopes of mountains and ridges and where moisture is stored in shady sides on hills. Yin energy gives birth to forests, oxygen, clouds, thunder and lightning. As an architect, designer and consultant, I work with recycled materials and natural building products. My Costa Rica home plans, designs and blueprints have been featured on Travel Channel, MSNBC, Lloyd Kahn’s Tiny Homes and Survivor.
Bio Logically designed homes? What does that mean? Here’s a different way of explaining it. Yan or sometimes called ‘Yang’ energy is masculine, resides in our left side of our brains and is associated with the day, the sun and resistance to the elements. Yan is representing by the longest and shortest days of the year of the summer and winter solstices. Associated with our brains and thinking minds, Yan energy is opposite of Yin energy and is made up of positively charged ions. Yan is associated with our thinking brains and our child hood perceptions. Basically our fear based programming creates and supports belief patterns. In odd and peculiar ways, this YIn and Yan energy can be used to deflect warm air or attract cool morning breezes.
I’ve been helping people design homes in Costa Rica and Panama since 1999. My home designs have been featured in Tico Times, Audi Magazine, Lloyd Kahn’s Tiny Homes, Bloomberg News, MSNBC, CNN and recently on the Travel Channel’s 2016 series, “Life’s a Beach”. I also teach workshops on sacred geometry, hydrology, fractal theory and demonstrate Yin and Yan in Architecture. My vision will compliment your ideas and you’ll find working together with me on line is easy. If you are building a House and Hotel designs in Costa Rica and Panama and you feel you’d like these principal and philosophies put into your custom home design, you should contact me.
