Fujian Tulou,China.


These are the most representative and best preserved examples of the buildings in  the mountainous regions of south-eastern China. The large, technically sophisticated and dramatic earthen defensive buildings, built between the 13th and 20th centuries, in their highly sensitive setting in fertile mountain valleys, are an extraordinary reflection of a communal response to settlement which has persisted over time. Another one from Phoebe received with thanks.
