Abstract

The research is focused on the transformed built environment based on the typologies of historic and modern spatial layouts. Cities have always been termed as constantly evolving physical areas that constitute a characteristic environment through their ordered spatial configuration. This research was carried out following the descriptive, comparative and analytical approach. The characteristic of the traditional historic cities is embedded in the cultural routes which are based on their social system. The fundamental principle of spatial configuration is unity, simplicity and functionality of the space according to the interdependence among community. The modern developments followed new patterns in city planning to accommodate the large population with communal utilities and public services. Modern attitude gave emphasis to the material considerations and focuses on the individualism, commercialism in addition to functionalism that disconnects the communities. The difference in the spatial configuration of the selected historic and contemporary societies of Lahore concluded the adoption of modern concepts in the contemporary societies.
