The majority of the literature on the transformation of cultural promotion space in old residential areas in the United States and abroad is written from the top-down perspective of God, such as architects, planners, developers, and even government officials, and only a few of them examine the designer’s work from the perspective of aborigines. To sample life and gain insight into human nature, find another means to be as near to the public as possible, listen to the voice of users, and conduct an in-depth examination of the freestyle works altered by the old residential districts through the “people’s architectural planner.”
