Earth Buildings

Zhencheng is an important building under provincial protection. It consists of two rings, both designed according to the Eight Diagrams (eight combinations of three lines formerly used in divination). The outer ring has four storeys---kitchens on the first floor, granaries on the second, and bedrooms on the third and the fourth. Between each "diagram" is a fire wall. The meeting hall and reception rooms are in the two-storeyed inner ring, in which one hall, two wells, three gates and four stairs are reasonably designed and symmetrically located. On its sides there is a school and a garden. Admiring such structure art, a foreign expert referred to Zhencheng as "mythological architecture". In 1985, a model of Zhencheng was exhibited on an international architecture model show in Los Angeles.
