    Abstract

    In the past century, Changsha has experienced rapid urban growth with significant social
    changes. This study aims to understand how the historical evolution of the city and the spatial
    transformations it went through define temporal cause and causal relationships that can explain
    the urban form. The study uses structural changes in the Chinese political system as intervening
    variables and defines their social consequences under the view of Durkheimian solidarity.
    Through spatial analysis of historical and current maps in chosen periods, this paper suggests an
    interrelationship between top-down orders, social solidarities and economic movements which is
    dialogic and differentiated in different evolution stages. While arguing that the current
    Changsha’s spatial form sees a compromise between political and economic factors, the study
    sets up the discussion which focuses on the historical aspects of the city core and provides
    recommendations about how to alleviate its pressures for the future historical protection.
