We take the traditional residence of Nepal as prototype, and tenon- mortise connected wooden framework as load bearing structure. as we all know, this kind of building have great advantages in earthquake-resistance with little deadweight and flexible structural node. In the same time, since components are proportional, dimension of each component of the wooden framework can be settled by the width and depth of the residence.
Similar to the local traditional architectural compound mode, units are enclosed by corridors and walls, and compound in succession.
By expending the building plane,we can lay the residence on any kind of shape of the base.With small size units,we can build residence that adapt to mountainous landscape.Residence can build towel and pond in the yard traditionally, and isolated buildings are conducive to fire prevention.
Although the local construction is mostly damaged in the earthquake, the residual bricks retain Nepalese people’s emotional sustenance.ome waste materials after the earthquake, such as soil, wood and residual bricks still can be utilized in the new residence. The appliance of protruding eaves, strut bow and decorated windows enhance the sense of belonging of the residence.
