“Traditional to Modern” Transformation of Beijing's Urban and Historically Conserved Areas—Based on Neoclassical "Structural-Functionalism"
Keywords:business anthropology, urban cultural heritage, the Neoclassical “Structure-Functionalism”, endogenous development, creative transformation and innovative development
How to deal with the relationship between cultural heritage and development in the process of urban modern transformation is a hot topic of urban regeneration. It is necessary to prevent the problem of homogeneity caused by the repetitive construction of “the same images of the city”, but also to promote the innovative development of cities. Based on the Neoclassical "Structure-Functionalism", this paper takes four urban historical and cultural areas in Beijing as examples to conduct a typological analysis. The urban and historically conserved areas as “structural heritage” can jump out of the dilemma of “traditional” and “modern” and realize the living inheritance of urban culture through endogenous development.
