Abstract

<p>This is a project report of construction of two experimental housing units “hybrid houses”, aiming to discuss the challenges and opportunities to develop earthquake resilient housing in Nepal by introducing Japanese two-by-four construction to Nepalese houses. This paper firstly overviews the characteristics of vernacular houses in Nepal and observes the housing damage after 2015 Nepal Earthquake, mainly through the field visit and interview in June 2015. Then, introducing the architectural characteristics of the hybrid house, the seismic assessment is conducted to convince the safety for earthquakes and winds. The conclusion highlights the lessons learned from the project. </p>
