Jury Citation

The Liu Family Civil Residence is located in Xi Wen Xing Village in Shanxi province and was built during the Tang Dynasty, over a thousand years ago. The building's design, construction and decorative works are on par with the highest level of traditional Chinese building techniques and crafts. A conservation project was prepared in 1986 and started in 2001 under the supervision of cultural and construction experts. The building was carefully disassembled, and then reassembled using traditional building techniques.
