Paper Title:
The Optimization Design of Traditional Dwelling House in Loess Plateau - a Case Study of New Countryside Cave Dwelling House in Yan'an City
  Abstract

This paper shows us the concept of remodeling traditional cave-houses in frigid climate of Loess plateau, and the optimization design through study and practice on a common housing project in Yan’an has proved that designers should pay attention to the regional characteristics in both function and space. To achieve the goal of creating high comfort with low consumption, economic efficiency with less earthwork, designers should also aim at incorporating the specific local climate with architectural adaptability by combining the domestic low-cost technology with active design optimization.
