  "description": "<p>Gamo highland is one of the areas where traditional architecture practiced abundantly.<br>\nHowever, now differently constructed houses clearly shown and gradually disappearing.<br>\nTherefore, it is inspiring to study the loss and their current conditions. The purpose of the<br>\nstudy was to documenting and conserving the disappearing of the typical Gamo highland<br>\nKeeththas of; compound pattern, construction materials and techniques, indigenous design<br>\nideas, and architectural functions and space organizations. To achieve the objectives,<br>\nconventional means (direct observation, recording photo and video, direct measurement,<br>\nand drawing and sketching) and communication methods (interviews, questionnaires and<br>\ngroup discussion) were used. All collected data sets have been analyzed descriptively and<br>\npresented in pictures, tables, drawings, sketches, and maps. The result shows that the<br>\nhighland people live in scattered settlements and organized into many diverse deres. The<br>\nsettlements site also under the controls of the Gamo highland traditional laws called<br>\nwogas. The houses are located in a compound within a compound and surrounded by false<br>\nbanana(uuththa) and bamboo(woyisha). Gamo highland keeththa typologies are; Yarra,<br>\nKarra, Gothoma(zuffa) and Boreda. The houses have been made from<br>\nsplit(woyisha/woyirra) woven like an upside-down basket and then thatched with roof<br>\ncovering materials called qadda/gatta. The Gamo highland keeththa ideas generated from<br>\ncopying of nature. The study recommends that to conserve in the social and cultural life of<br>\nthe society, special attention has to be given for vernacular houses(keeththa) and for its<br>\nmaterials.<br>\n&nbsp;</p>",
