Abstract: 
With the countrys high diversity in terrain, language and vernacular architecture, Nepal was faced with a highly complex situation for post-disaster recovery and reconstruction after the devastating Gorka earthquake in 2015. Especially in regard to rural villages in the Himalayan mountain range, guidance for reconstruction was minimal. This study explores the interplay between the local building culture and the governmental Rural Housing Reconstruction Program as well as further external influences. The case study focuses on three remote villages in Tsum Valley and their family dwellings. With extensive fieldwork, this research provides an assessment on how these communities have reshaped their dwellings in the aftermath of the disaster. With the governmental recovery program as a backdrop, the center of attention is given to the local people, their perceptions and situation. Finally, seismic retrofitting suggestions are outlined. Nepal, ein Land geprägt durch seine Vielfalt an Landschaften, Sprachen und vernakulärer Architektur, war nach dem Gorka Erdbeben im Jahr 2015 mit einer sehr komplexen Situation im Bereich der Nothilfe und des Wiederaufbaus konfrontiert. Vor allem in lin den landwirtschaftlich geprägten Dörfern im Himalaya Gebirge war die Beratung für den Wiederaufbau der Bausubstanz auf ein Minimum beschränkt. Diese Arbeit fokussiert auf die Beziehung zwischen der lokalen Baukultur und dem staatlichen “Rural Housing Reconstruction Prgoram”. Die Fallstudie bezieht sich auf drei Dörfer im Tsum Tal und ihre Wohnhäuser. Im Rahmen einer umfangreichen Feldarbeit analysiert diese Arbeit wie abgelegene Gemeinschaften ihre gebaute Umgebung adaptiert haben. Vor dem Hintergrund der staatlichen Rekonstruktionsprogramme sowie der zugehörigen Baurichtlinien wird das Hauptaugenmerk auf die lokale Bevölkerung, deren Situation und deren Bedürfnisse gelegt, um ein tieferes Verständnis für ihre Handlungsweisen zu entwickeln. Auf dieser Basis werden bautechnische Verbessungen vorgeschlagen.
