Traditional Housing, Cambodia


This photo was taken between Angkor and Banteay Srei, Cambodia.
This wood building is typical of traditional housing construction : its thatched roof is lightweight, waterproof, and renewable, while the raised open-platform floor catches the breeze and elevates living quarters above the rain. Below the floor is shady space for storage, animals, or retreat during the heat of the day.
