  Abstract

In the history, water towns in the southeast of China had undergone a traffic mode change from waterborne traffic to road traffic. This research took Tong-li as an example, explored how this change has its effect on various aspects of the town: spatial structure, land-use distribution and the emerged and went down of commercial streets. The method applied here are literature review, historical map analysis, site observation and space syntax. It is found that the changing traffic mode has an far-reaching impact on the pedestrian network of Tong-li.
