Summary With the rapid development taking place in Chinese cities, there is growing conflict between this new building and the existing urban heritage. Chinese Urban Design offers an analytic and conceptual framework for both urban investigation and consequent design. Firstly summarising traditional urban design principles and how Chinese cities have transformed over time, it then introduces and offers a theoretic ground and scientific methodology for understanding the evolution of urban forms, initially developed in western countries. It demonstrates the theoretic model via real cases - from the city.
