Article:

Beijing Siheyuan is a type of Chinese vernacular housing with significant culturalvalue. During recent decades of economic growth, many Siheyuan houses havebeen destroyed; preserving the few remaining ones have become a necessity.Based on a historical analysis of their design principles, this paper develops aparametric model capable of representing its known variants. Our findingsinclude a useful design tool able to efficiently represent existing or lost housingtypes and thus contribute to our understanding of the typology and theirpreservation.
