Abstract

Starting from Wuhu’s historical and cultural origin, this research studies the historical status and historical development of the ancient city of Wuhu, as well as the regional culture and folk crafts that remain today. Secondly, in order to study the spatial characteristics of the ancient city of Wuhu, combined with ancient maps and the spatial status quo today, the paper summarizes the ancient city of Wuhu’s approximate ellipse urban morphology, the T-shaped street system, the two rivers’ converged waterfront environment, etc. Furthermore, aiming at the cultural and historical aspects of the ancient city and its spatial characteristics, the paper makes an historical and cultural resource integration of the ancient city by reconstructing patterns, combing streets, marking highlights, repairing texture, restoring landscapes and other aspects. In order to promote the overall conservation of the ancient city, the old city’s renewal and development lays the foundation for the next step.
