Urban and rural developments in contemporary China are undergoing a transition period, which is the transformation of a traditional agricultural society into a modern industrial and urban society. The binary structure of urban and rural is more specific in China because of multiple reasons. The most notable issue is a shift in the economic balance and the widening of the prosperity gap between urban and rural areas. In this session ,we research on typical areas of China, try to explore the spatial -temporal changes of urban-rural construction land use and its driving forces, including the spatial pattern of population shrinkage in agricultural province, rural land reform in development town, the resilience of villages, spatial evolution mechanism of the rural settlements in Megacities and the spatial decay law of patronage.
