This publication is the outcome of an initiative taken by a research group from the Architecture and Civil Engineering Department of the Chiba Institute of Technology, in partnership with the Bhutan Ministry of Public Works and Human Settlement. The idea of field surveys and observations on traditional houses across the region was first raised in 2009; in 2013, the project’s fourth survey was completed. Replete with data, drawings, diagrams, maps, and photographs, plus interviews with locals on their ways of living and land management, the volume presents a comprehensive report on domestic architecture and village typologies in Bhutan.
