Abstract

Our surveys have revealed 9 churches in existence with vertically-elongated timber-framed structure that are located in the Red river delta area, 7 churches in the PhatDiem diocese, 1 in the ThanhHoa diocese and 1 in the HaNoi diocese. This paper aims at shedding light on architectural characteristics of the vertically-elongated timber-framed structure from the viewpoint of architectural history, by analyzing and comparing with normal timber-framed 46 churches that have been completed architectural survey. Though the vertically-elongated timberframed structure has been limited in number and areas, this manner of structure has architectural significance in considering traditional technics of Vietnamese timber structures.
