How do architecture relate to people? How do Indigenous Peoples in Finland, Taiwan and around the world continue to embrace their culture in the changing environment (e.g. in the post-disaster context)? Architecture relates to different local materials and groups of people in many different ways. Architect Hsieh Ying-Chun has 20 years of experience building houses with Taiwan Indigenous peoples in post-disaster (e.g. typhoon, flooding, earthquake) context. Building on the experience from Taiwan, this informal discussion would like to draw attention to the Indigenous peoples in Finland and from other parts of the world to see how Indigenous Peoples continue to embrace their culture in the changing environment.
