Dong Vorfertigung im Holzbau

From Tradition to Tourist Attraction – Dong Wood Construction

Once seen, never forgotten – the pagoda-covered wind and rain bridges of the Dong people in South China. The mortise and tenon construction used for the bridges is also used for pagoda-like drum towers, theatre stages and village gates, as well as the houses that the Dong live in. The wood architecture of the Dong is one of the last remnants of an ancient culture in China.
