Masonry walls being built for a new house Limbu, Bina


Masonry walls are the norm in most rural areas for building construction. Horizontal bands have started to be incorporated in the new houses as part of the earthquake resistant design techniques that became more widespread following the 2015 earthquake. 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’.
