In Form School feng shui, whether it is looking at the surrounding landscape pattern or at the internal and external layout of a building, the main aims are to “welcome the (sheng) qi", to "obtain the (sheng) qi", to "gather the (sheng) qi" and to "store the (sheng) qi" from its healthy environment.
