A military-related townscape: The case of Zuoying, Taiwan

1 Citation (Scopus)

Abstract

Morphological analysis similar to that employed by M. R. G. Conzen is used to examine the agents and agencies shaping the military city of Zuoying. The walled city and naval base underwent four phases of physical change. These were associated with functional changes that have reflected different military strategies and technologies. Seven morphological regions are recognized. Light is also shed on the urban historical context within which East Asian cities more widely have developed.
