Urban Design of Concession

————Tradition and Transformation in the Chinese Treaty Ports

書籍介紹

上海、廣州、福州、寧波、廈門、大連、漢口、哈爾濱、南京、汕頭、天津和青島等沿岸城市,作為中國現代化和經濟發展的重鎮,均承載著同一段歷史:都是十九世紀中期,中國被迫與西方國家簽訂「不平等條約」而開放的通商口岸。一百五十多年來,因為政治上的並行架構、文化和經濟上的種種衝擊,這些通商口岸不單成為貿易開放和經濟發展的契機,更建立了獨特的城市文化,甚至成為中國現代化和政治變革的重要戰場。

Urban Design of Consession 仔細分析這十二個通商口岸,從歷史和地理的脈絡出發,以細膩的素描和文字,尋找這些城市獨有的規劃、街道和建築群,嘗試勾勒其空間和文化上的變遷。

Established as beachheads of foreign influence along coastal China during the mid-nineteenth century, the twelve Treaty Ports – Shanghai, Dalian (Dalyn), Fuzhou (Foochow), Guangzhou (Canton), Hankou (Hankow), Harbin, Nanjing (Nanking), Ningbo (Ningpo), Shantou (Swatow), Tianjin, Tsingtao, and Xiamen (Amoy) – can be considered from a number of perspectives – initially as differentiated societies with dual administrative structures; as socio-cultural phenomena; as new political power structures; as robust centres of international trade and commercial growth; and as new regimes of city building and institutional development. These ‘gateways’ both into and out of China, transformed not only attitudes to modernization, but almost inadvertently fuelled changing political attitudes.
This book examines the evolving contextual changes in the Treaty Ports over the past 150 years. It illustrates, through writing and line sketches, the imprints on the modernizing cities of older places and spaces from these early times, which have left a residue of physical traces in terms of plan forms, streets and building groups
