In the decision-maker’s points of view, the central located city villages should be replaced by the well-designed products step by step. However, it has been proved again and again that the existence of the villages somehow is very meaningful to the city. So, how could we explain this meaning with more detailed analysis of their performances from the spatial degree?
It is interesting that the radius 375 m of shared cognitive area pick out most of the city villages , and all of them have the ‘deformed wheel ‘structure, which implies the mature and energy of these villages.
The correspondence between attributes of the shops--the length of shop façade and area of shop respectively--and attributes of the space by various radii is explored. If there is a case, then the radius which defined by the relationship can be regarded as the radius of the area the village embedded in the urban context. And the most economic successful village has the biggest radius, vice versa.
If compared with EMD figures, which describes the density of the shops, it also can be found the clear correspondences between the commercial livability and the spatial structure. And thus the space in the villages can contribute to the performance they play in the city and it is proved that most of them have quite active relations with the surrounded varying the scales.
