From Tulou to housing design
The project aims to analyze the different elements of Tulou, a traditional Chinese collective house, and apply them to the new project with modern architectural language. In Tulou everyone can find a comfortable space either to get along with the others or to enjoy tranquility on one's own. People of different needs can find suitable places to communicate, make friends and enrich their lives. However, with the fast development of urbanism, the feature is lost. What could architects do to learn from the traditional housing, and bring various communication spaces to modern lives? In my project, I tried to bring different grades of communication spaces for people of various needs.
