The Feasibility Study on Structural Insulated Panels in Rural Settlements of LuGu Lake
Rural settlements of LuGuLake in Yunnan province have an original architectural characteristics —Wooden houses which are shaped by the climate and topographic conditions, local materials, and the social living style. But because of the typical well-dry type construction of the wooden houses which need more massive lumbers to be constructed, it leads to the disappearance of the luxuriant forest. The other building materials such as tamped earth, bricks and stones, reinforce concrete replace the wood materials. The research’s goal is to solve the ecology problem which was brought by wood rooms built by lumbers and the compatible problem between the new houses built by modern materials and vernacular architecture in LuGu Lake.
