i think the best way to safeguard the traditional styled residences from disappearing in  beijing is to revive the traditional li ving principle. our ancestors always had the urge to place themselves in a natural enviroment in order to achieve mental harmony. what's more, they also hold fast a very strong family concept. based on those beliefs, they build up their lives, for instance, the one-floor walled dwelling houses with a square yard in the middle.  such a building style shows clearly the intimate relations between people and the nature. the walled yard can be used to protect others from peeking into our domestic affairs. in the meanwhile, it united the family members and kins together so that they can give their timly helping hand if any of them are in trouble or plight.
merely because those time-honored philosophy stop dominating our life, the traditioal hutong or siheyuan give their way to supermarket,  so if we have in mind to salvage those treasures of culture, we must first and formost embrace those living principle .
