Shenzhen Design Center is organizing a free tour of five Hakka walled residence houses Saturday. Attendees should sign up at the organizer’s WeChat “shenzhen-design.”

Hakka walled homes are large multi-family communal living structures that are designed to be easily defensible. This building style is unique to the Hakka people found in southern China. Walled villages are typically designed for defensive purposes and consist of one entrance and no windows on the ground level.

Attendees will visit Longtian Hakka Residence, Changlong Hakka Residence, Huilong Hakka Residence, Rongtian Hakka Residence and Qingpai Hakka Residence in Pingshan District.
