Fujian Province, China, Hakka houses

In Chinese, tulou literally means “earthen house.” Built by the Hakka people who migrated in the late 11th century, these round, communal houses are now classified as UNESCO World Heritage sites.

They’re large, constructed in line with feng shui principles, and, in their heyday, housed up to 800 people. Today, the tulou are substantially more rundown and major tourist attractions but still serve as extended family homes.
