I HOPE YOU FIND IT INTERESTING AND ENJOYABLE AS WELL. WE ARE TRAVELING TO SOUTHEAST CHINA TO TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT IS CALLED “FUJIAN TULOU.”
It is essentially an ancient Chinese version of an apartment dwelling that is derived
from the essential need of a family unit, and the idea that 2 person’s or more are
better for protection. So is the physical structure of these unit’s. They are a
somewhat primitive form of a regional vernacular Architecture that met their
social and political needs during that time period. Most of these structures were built
around the 15th and 20th century, and they are still being used.
