i find these clan houses to be really interesting:
"Built from the 11th to the 20th century in the mountainous areas across Fujian and neighboring provinces, the "Tulou" buildings could house a whole clan. They also served other functions such as defense.
The building usually consists of a rammed earth outer wall and internal wooden framework. "
Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on Fu!

An old town in the North-West of Italy. Most of it was ruined in an earthquake in the early 20 Century. Then in the sixties it was "conquered" by hippies and is now regarded as an art/agricultural town. The people living there have built themselves homes in the ruins of the town. My Fotos might not be top notch, but they give the feeling of the place. They sky was clouded so not much light.
Hope these help someone.
Feel free to use them as reference.
I might add a few more which were taken with a better camera.
