Abstract

World heritage site Fujian has a number of traditional settlements named Tulou, which are existing historical records of family culture and local construction techniques in old times. In recent decades, most of them are abandoned by local occupants and then partly collapsed without any conservation. A rising number of researchers have realized that it is necessary to revitalize and regenerate those rural settlements from a long-term perspective in response to energy saving, carbon reduction, and heritage conservation. This study will discuss a regenerative design framework of a general Tulou deployed in Fujian. Sustainable and resilient solutions proposed in this study are: (1) spatial design to satisfy the demands of modern lifestyles; and, (2) constructive design to promote the abilities of environmental adaptation. This regenerative design framework is suggested as a potential principle, leading to further reconsideration of human-earth relationships.
