This project proposal looks at the construction of a high school for the Sri Sathya Sai Organisation in South Africa using ecological design principles and Vastu Architecture as guiding strategies. The document discusses the need for sustainable development in relation to the built environment. The mechanisms, objectives and reasons for existence of the Sri Sathya Sai Organisation are also discussed. The proposal also introduces the science of Vastushastra as a science that can benefit human beings on both material and spiritual levels. The proposal lists the various alternative technologies that are available to make the built environment more sustainable and then goes further to present the relevant technologies that will be used in the project.
