Large, damaged house Suji, Manoj


Many of the new houses following the government-approved earthquake resistant designs issued after the 2015 earthquake do not incorporate many of the traditional features of the old houses. This house is not only fairly large for the village, but also has traditional design elements such as two-and-half storey construction, extended verandah as a separate room, and carved wooden struts. 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’.
