With great pleasure SACS welcomes Dr.Albert P.T. So
Feng Shui, called Geomancy in the western world, is one distinctive discipline of ancient Chinese culture and much more than Geomancy because Feng Shui deals with the heaven, the Earth and the mankind. China had not got a formal study in town planning and architecture in the past. Feng Shui was actually that area of study. Some fundamental ingredients of Feng Shui, like Tai Ji, Yin-yang, Trigrams, Five Elements etc. will be highlighted. Feng Shui can basically be divided into two schools, Form School and Compass School, the development and principles of which will also be introducted. A little bit more emphasis on the “Flying Star” Method of Compass School will be placed on with a couple of case studies. Moreover, the concept of scientific Feng Shui will also be presented.
Dr. Albert So is the founding Chair of Asian Institute of Intelligent Buildings (AIIB). From 2005 to 2009, he had been organizing a series of international conferences on Scientific Feng Shui and the Built Environment for AIIB. A monograph entitled “Research in Scientific Feng Shui and the Built Environment” written by him, was published by City University of Hong Kong Press in 2009 while another introductory text entitled “Scientific Feng Shui for the Built Environment – Fundamentals and Case Studies” will be published by the same Press in January, 2011. Dr. So is an electrical engineer by profession and he has been studying various areas related to paranormal investigations such as ufology, EVP and OBE etc.
