Review by Lee Prosser - firstname.lastname@example.org
This is one of the finest recent publications about sacred geometry and architecture. A question for paranormal investigators should be: Are there more ghostly sightings found in old buildings and structures with sacred geometry influences, or are there more in the modern landscape? Sacred geometry plays a role.
Written by a master architect, Herbert Bangs, The Return of Sacred Architecture reveals what is sacred geometry and how it can help restore harmony. He makes some sound and insightful comments.
Fully illustrated, the book is a nice reference. Chapters cover the following topics: "The Return of the Spirit," "Intuition and the Creative Mind," and a fascinating chapter on archetypes of shelter which covers the cave, the clearing, the garden, the presence of water, and the four elements. Many topics are covered.
For those interested in the sacred geometry of architecture, and what it means since the dawning of time and appearance of humans, this book is well-worth your reading time. Highly enjoyable reading, and something to learn from. Excellent book.
