Architecture in Vietnam


Before the French invasion, Chinese architectural styles were copied with traditional Vietnamese buildings (temples or official buildings) being composed of wood, usually with elaborate carvings, and tile roofs.  The floors consist of either packed earth or tile.  Basically, the building (house or other structure) has four main posts/pillars which are the supports for the roof.  The walls are not necessarily functional as support for the roof (the posts do this) but are comprised of bricks, bamboo, wood or bast fiber mats.  

The roof supports vary according to the structure size and are put together by shafts, dowels or wooden pegs.  All buildings are basically the same structure, just larger or smaller according to their purpose, with no basic structural difference between a home or temple (with an exception being a village's community house).
