About Yongding Earth Building

The tulou at Yongding are located in Longyan, Fujian Province. These are fascinating mountain region residential buildings that have been called “the exotic flowers of ancient Chinese architecture.” Each Yongding tulou is built with its own unique style but in one of two general types, rectangular or round. Professor Ichiro Mogi of the Tokyo University of the Arts said that “Tulou appear like giant mushrooms poking up out of the ground or like UFOs that have fallen from the sky.” Even more interestingly, dozens of blood-related families live together within each tulou. Living clustered together as an extended family like this must certainly be lively and homely.
