The rammed-earth house was designed by the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and a team of seismic design experts at the University of Cambridge.


The construction techniques developed through the prototype aim to help the residents of Guangming Village in Zhaotong rebuild their homes following the Ludian earthquake in 2014. 

According to Dezeen.com, the award-winning prototype house developed for a Chinese village destroyed by earthquake could protect millions of people around the world, claims architecture professor Edward Ng in this movie Dezeen filmed at World Architecture Festival 2017.

The house was developed for an elderly couple in Guangming Village using construction methods that could be taught to other residents to rebuild their homes affordably using locally available materials.
