Short essay: Analyze the adherence of a modern Indian temple (or Hindu/Buddhist temple in the west) for its adherence to ancient architectural principles.

Short essay: There is a contemporary movement in dwelling architecture to build according to architectural theory of the vāstu śāstra/vidya. Do you think this movement fulfills a more traditional implementation of the principles of the vāstu śāstra? Or would you characterize it as a “new age” reinterpretation?

Short essay: Choose a monument (Jaina, Buddhist, Hindu) and retroactively apply what you know of the vāstu śāstra principles to the structure.

Longer paper: Compare the theoretical architectural principles of Indian architecture with another Western architectural tradition. Are there parallels in the theoretical ideas of these two traditions? What about in their formal principles?
