Beyond tents and prefab houses:

Beyond the physical and emotional toll imposed on the affected population, they also lead to displacement and a settlement period that can go on for a long time. Therefore, housing solutions that can provide a comfortable living environment in the immediate aftermath of disasters become an urgent demand. After the eld research in the earth- quake-affected region with his team, Mr Chen Huanyu, an architect, comes up with some new thinking on post-disaster settlement and proposes plans in improving post-disaster housing solutions.
