Filmmaker David Lynch builds a building. Here he explores with architect Vince Dyer how to approach the design and construction process of creating a Vedic Bungalow using Maharishi Sthapatya Veda Architecture in accord with Natural Law. The Vedas are the original scriptures of Hindu teachings, and contain spiritual knowledge encompassing all aspects of our life. "Veda" means wisdom.

There are many "rules" to follow in designing a proper Sthapatya structure. Such as the center of the space should be open, and windows should be of a certain size. David's greatest challenge is to blend and balance his artistic sense and ideas of what he sees in his mind's eye, and at the same time obey all the rules.

David calls himself "a frustrated builder. A self-described "Eagle Scout from Missoula, Montana", He began to draw and paint at the age of fifteen. His first film "Six Men Getting Sick" was conceived as "paintings that moved", and to a large extent to this day, the worlds he creates are seamless painting-like images that create the strong sense of mood and emotion that you can feel in all his pictures moving or otherwise. His work is genuine and unpretentious both in the stories he chooses to tell, and the feelings they generate whether he's directing, painting, photographing, composing, furniture-building or any other passionate pursuits.

One thing's for sure, whatever he comes up with, David's design has the potential to make a meaningful difference in places people can live.
