Founder and Director
Mayank Barjatya is the founder and director of Vastuworld, with over 20 years of experience in Energy Architecture. His professional and educational background in architecture, human energetics, environmental studies and a strong interest in quantum physics informed his holistic approach in creating a design consultancy in Pune, India. Mayank is fueled by his passion for Indian Contemporary Architecture and German Building Biology Principles. He combines his learning from both to create spaces that are in tune with their occupants’ bodily energies.
Mayank’s educational profile includes an Architecture degree from Pune University, India as well as a Masters in Ecology and Environment from New Delhi. This was further augmented with a certification in Bioenergetics from Acmos-Paris in association with the Institute of Complementary Medicine of Great Britain and a stint with Er. Wolfgang Priggen at BZS, Germany studying Building Biology. He is also instrumental in getting the Gold Lecher Antenna to India.
Mayank’s work has been noticed and appreciated across the world. He has traveled to present papers and address conferences globally. Yet, he is constantly in the pursuit of furthering academic, research, and professional excellence in the field of Vastu. Today he offers consultancy on contemporary architecture and Vastu Shastra for residential and professional spaces. He also teaches young architects and Vastu enthusiasts on his bespoke models of energy rectification at VastuworldLearning.com . Mayank is also a Faculty for Design & Development at the School of Science & Design Innovation at New Earth University.
Mayank owes his wife Priti for being his constant support, counsel and companion. Priti was his rock in uncertain times. She inspired him to dream big and showed him what he was truly capable of.
