Wulipu Siaolin Community permanent housing
Taiwan
In order to reconstruct the Xiaolin Village that was buried by a mudslide triggered by Typhoon Morakot in 2009 and that claimed 700 lives, the government and some charitable organizations built new houses for the survivors and their relatives at the Jiaxian and Shanling Districts. One hundred twenty houses were built in the Wulipo Permanent Housing Community in Jiaxian District with help from the Red Cross. The built area totaled 5.8 hectares. Designed in the style of single-family semi-detached house, patios have good lighting and ventilation. The houses, the neighborhood park, and community center plus other public facilities all bear the Pingpu tribe's traditional designs, thus achieving the goal of indigenous culture preservation.

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
