Father’s House

This house was built in the architect’s hometown for his father, on a plateau in a river valley at the foot of the Qinlin Mountains in northwest China. The river extracts stones from the mountains and deposits them in the valley, and these stones constitute one of the primary materials used to construct the house. The stones were collected from the riverbanks by local workmen and villagers and sorted according to size, shape and colour.
