Study on the Hakka Dwellings Characteristics Based on Its Centrality
Abstract: The formation and growth of the Hakka people are accompanied by four important factors: social differentiation, collective migration, ethnic integration and geographical barriers. The gradual maturity and diversification of Hakka culture under many unfavorable conditions is inseparable from its inner centrality. Through the centripetal interpretation of Hakka culture, it can help to better understand the core characteristics of Hakka dwellings. This article refines the basic types of 'well' 'temple' 'wei' 'chi' and 'lou', and explores the centrality of Hakka dwellings in Hakka culture. It will help to sort out the characteristics and commonalities of diversified Hakka dwellings in many different regions and to provide effective ideas for the protection and sustainable development of Hakka dwellings.
