Abstract

Gully region of Loess Plateau is one of the subtype regions and natural geographical units in Loess Plateau. Due to the backward economy and fragile ecology, the development
of rural area restr ained and even contracted for a long time. Since the implementation of construction of new socialist countryside in 2005, this region has developed amazingly.
However, lack of ecological and sustainable development theory as the guideline, lots of new vernacular dwellings just pursuit construction speed and the convenience of operation,
and simply copy the urban construction model, which cause the separation of rural habitats construction with regional characteristics. Based on the field investigation, this paper
analyzes the development tendency of vernacular dwellings in gully region of Loess Plateau and construction situation of the newly built vernacular dwellings. Then, it summarizes
the problems of vernacular dwellings during the new countryside construction. Finally, the paper analyzes the reasons of the problem. The results of this research can make up the
gaps exited in the construction of new countryside, which hopes to be uses as reference in the future ecological and sustainable construction of vernacular dwellings in gully regions of
Loess Plateau.
