Paper Title:
An Analysis of the Settlement Pattern Based on Linear Layout - a Case Study on Shangzhuang Village of Yangcheng, Shanxi Province
  Abstract

The settlement pattern of a village is selected and formulated as result of interaction between the natural environment and humanistic environment, rather than any accidental causes. This paper is to analyze the internal causes of the formation of the settlement pattern of Shangzhuang Village based on the research on the structure and layout of this famous village. Shangzhuang Village, being located in Yangcheng County, Shanxi Province, has a long history and rich culture. The study is intended to find some enlightenment from this vernacular architecture as a scientific swatch for the protection and sustainable development of such villages nowadays.
