Tulou building, is a giant surrounding building in Fujian Province. It uses unprocessed raw earth to build load-bearing walls. Its function is that four generations live under the same roof and housing and defense in one, with a total number of more than 3,000 buildings. The unique form of residential houses in Southeast China originated in the Song and Yuan Dynasties. It is the family compound where the northern nobles moved to the south to escape the war. For their own safety, the building itself was added with extremely strengthened defensive functions. It is known as the treasure of traditional Chinese residential houses because of its convenience of being located on the mountain, using local materials and including the whole ethnic group. - - - - #tulou #building #house #fujian #china #travel #traveling #exploretheworld #travelphotography #photography #canonphotography #canon #photographylovers #bnw #blackandwhite #bnwphotography #bnwphoto #circle #instacanon #instatravel #instaphotography #instachina #instabuilding #中國 #福建 #攝影 #旅行 #土樓 #建築 #黑白

Today in frame is a very special architecture form called Tulou. It’s located in southeastern China’s rural area, particularly in Fujian Province, and was built mainly as a fortress against robbers. Tulou is also on the UNESCO world heritage list. Each Tulou has only one main gate, and what makes it particularly interesting is that it can accommodate thousands of people at the same time; the biggest Tulou has up to 1,300 residents and it’s said to have 5 generations living under the same roof! My guide told me they tend to marry someone living close by, wonder if they may end up marrying their cousins or distant aunts... #hellofrom #fujian 🏠 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - #theknot #house #tulou #unesco #culturetrip #fuzhou #china #photo_shorttrip #archidaily #art_chitecture #bitsofbuildings #archi_features #lr_bold #speechless-places #visualambassadors #travelandleisure #theglobewanderer #beautifuldestinations #traveltheworld #somewheremagazine #yourshotphotographer #natgeo #searchwandercollect #chinatravel #chinadestinations #unlimitedchina #福建 #土楼

Picking tea leaves as a meditation. #teatime #teaharmony ・・・ Photos by Michael Yamashita @yamashitaphoto / Springtime in tulou land: Perfectly groomed rows of tea plants surround a traditional circular tulou—which means earthen building—a communal dwelling of the Hakka people in Fujian, China.
