Since the beginning of time, the sky has earned a profound and sacred meaning. Hence to climb to the top of the hill, where the Gods dwell, is a symbol of mythic power that has been central to the beliefs of almost every society.
Thus the great Hindu temples of south India are not just a collection of shrines and gopurams, but a movement through the open-to-sky pathways that lie between them. Such a path is the essence of our experience, it represents a sacred journey – pradakhshina. This sense of the sky extends our relationship to how we live and how open spaces affects us.
Spend time with kids in the children’s play area, enjoy your favorite book or newspaper in the courtyard, enjoy outdoors with family and friends in the pocket park. This open social spaces offer countless possibilities for building a tight-knit community.At each of these spaces, subtle changes in the quality of light, air and sky generates a feeling which is central to our very well-being.
