Incomplete house at Manje Limbu, Bina


The construction of this house started and stopped before the earthquake struck. Use of concrete seems to have been popular with the wealthy before the post-earthquake reconstruction began in the rural areas. Taken during the 1st phase of fieldwork conducted by the research team based at Social Science Baha in Kathmandu, Nepal, as part of the SSHRC Partnership Development Grant, ‘Expertise, Labour and Mobility in Nepal’s Post-Conflict, Post-Disaster Reconstruction’.
