For which desire?

A world heritage of humanity site by UNESCO, the site of Fujian Tulou, includes dozens of mud houses, built between the 15th and 20th century and spread over 120 km southwest of the province Fujian. Set amongst rice paddies, fields of tea or tobacco, the houses are houses of several stories into the ground. Circular or square, they are oriented inward and could house up to 800 people. They were built for defensive purposes around a central courtyard with open windows to the outside only from the first floor and a single entry. Used as a dwelling to the whole clan, the houses functioned as village units and were known as "little kingdom for the family" or "bustling small city." They feature tall fortified mud walls covered by tiled roofs with wide overhanging eaves. The buildings were divided vertically between families with each disposing of two or three rooms on each floor. In contrast to the sober from the outside, inside the tulou were designed for comfort and often richly decorated. These buildings represent a unique example of human settlement, based on communal living and defensive needs while maintaining harmony with their environment.
