Abstract Summary
The article attempts to explore the process of how cyberspace transforming traditional urban public spaces and changing tomorrow’s urban typologies. Graham Stephen, Aharon Kellerman and other scholar emphases the transformed urban space twisted with the inventions of telephones, fax, video -phones and the Internet. Public spaces are crowded with the interactions of Individuals with mobile phones; the communication and interaction of thousands of different levels within virtual space are far more behind the current fact. Researches and debates within Urban Planning and urbanism intensively stumble along with the changes of urban space under the impact of technology. Through the public space theory by Jan Gehl and human behaviour analysis, this paper restructured and dissected the phenomenon, in order to nurture the process during design practices and decision-making.
