Abstract

In this study, a survey was conducted on traditional townhouses in historic districts in Taiwan. To investigate the development process of townhouse architecture, this study used the townhouses in the historic district of Dihua Street in Taipei as research samples and conducted on-site mapping surveys and interviews. To determine the overall conservation environment of historic districts, this study conducted on-site surveys in Taipei City’s Dihua Street, Taipei County’s Sanxia Old Street, and Taoyuan County’s Daxi Old Street. Data collected during on-site surveys were analyzed and compared, and these results served as a crucial reference for this study.
