The process of the city depends on its scale, from town, city to metropolitan. In the latest city theory, “Metacity” is already used to describe the modern city on its dynamic and ever-changing looks as well as substance. The un-planned development of the city including the slums, illegal building and the invisible social community actually provide a stimulus for changes in the city. Under the situation of “Plan does not catch up with changes”, the changes in the society guide the new energetic medium, even serve as a driving force of special culture. The symposium will focus the discussion on this issue.
