Abstract

Taiwan was a colony of Japan from 1895 to 1945. Due to the war between Japan and China from 1937 to 1945, the Japanese government, Architectural Institute of Japan and Architectural Institute of Taiwan had done researches to propose strategies in saving timber materials. Therefore, this paper reviews the history of saving timber materials during that time, and then compares the different situations in Japan with those in Taiwan. The result shows that, unifying the sawn timber dimensions for the measures of timber buildings, setting standard building types by construction experiments and housing censuses, and then designing the standard building types in corresponding to the timber dimensions, are main steps to save the timber materials.
