The Traditional Architecture in Timor-Leste: Ne’ebe’ Harii:

Research output: Non-traditional research outputExhibition


This study is based on fieldwork conducted in 4 regions in Timor Leste in March 2019 and from January – March 2020, [Viqueque, Maubisse, Lautem and Baucau]. The analysis is informed by extensive archival research undertaken variously by the author in private and public libraries in Dili –TL, as well as at the National Library of Australia [Canberra-AUS] and at the archives of Biblioteca Universitaria Joao Paulo II [Lisbon-PT]. Architectural space, construction, and types were recorded with emphasis on measured drawings, interviews and photographing. Local residents were interviewed in order to have a deeper understanding of their living contexts, families, religions, etc. Drawings were produced as elevations, plans and sections as well as detailing. The exhibition will present uniquely documentation of the architecture of Timor-Leste.
