Quantitative Study on the Street Interface Form of Beijing Historical District — Taking Dashilar as an Example


Streets are not only the skeleton of a city, but also the label of the quality of a city's public space. Taking Dashilar, a historical district in Beijing, as the research object, this paper makes a quantitative study on the interface shape of Dashilar pedestrian street from three levels and 12 indicators. From the urban level, it mainly analyzes the street texture and accessibility; from the architectural level, it mainly makes quantitative analysis on the building uniformity, interface density, store density, fractal dimension, line sticking rate, transparency and openness on both sides of the street; from its own level, it makes quantitative analysis on the street curvature, aspect ratio and sky exposure. Thus, the morphological characteristics of Dashilar street interface are quantitatively analyzed. It also provides a reference for the future research on street vitality and the quality improvement of urban public space.
