    Metaphysical virtue of architecture Masses attract each other that is why this universe did not collapse; whole universe is a designed activity of God, the synergized design of solar system is the same design of an atom and this is not just a coincidence. If we understand this, we can understand the metaphysical virtue of any designed space or masses. Every built environment has an aura, radiating to its environs and within its own spaces and every building is a statement in architectural language. All an architect need to do is to have a clear concept before sharpening the pencil to sketch. NUHA have done a conceptual building, ‘Ferozson’s laboratory corporate office building’ at Raiwand, Lahore. The building is operative since February 2010 however it was formally inaugurated on September 25, 2011 by CM, Punjab, Mr. Shahbaz Sharif. We conceived a design which depicts life. The client produces life saving drugs for ailments such as Cancer & Hepatitis ‘C’. NUHA developed an intriguing concept for the building which echoes the life, ‘Water is the source and plants are expression of life’ The building emerges out of water (source of life), and plants gush out of the building in a manner that they are fused with the masses. The building is finished with exposed concrete (truth) & use of divine color ‘white’ says it all. Two amalgamated masses in the design symbolize the joint venture of a Pakistani company with a foreign one. The building is on a shallow pool to combat hot weather. Tilted main mass is to manage the southern solar path. This building now stands poised in the middle of nowhere exuding not only life but life in all its purity. Since the site location is in the outskirts of Lahore where one cannot even get a 2” screw as construction material, we had to be innovative for even construction management. This building has received an International Award from WorldArchitecture.Org in 6th cycle and ‘Honorable Mention’ in IAP design excellence awards, 2012. Read Less
