Thanks! Share it with your friends!


This series of documentaries are about the traditional carpentry in Southern China: the lives of the carpenters, their tools, their design methods as well as the procession and assembly of a timber structure, It was film in Zhejiang Province, China by myself during my gap year as an architectural student in Harvard Graduate School of Design.
