The article studies the transformation of the boundary type and adjacent urban fabric in Hubin (lakeside) area of Hangzhou in the period from 1912 to 2018. Since the ancient times, Hubin area has connected Hangzhou ancient city with the world heritage site West Lake. As a special boundary between the nature and city since the ancient times, Hubin area is also the most prosperous area in Hangzhou. The reconstructions based on different needs of the time have influenced changes of the city-nature boundary. Relevant social factors have significantly influenced this boundary area in many respects including its openness, accessibility, density and enclosure degree of adjacent city and so on. As the bond of urban area and landscape, Hubin area also changes with the boundary and fabric. The research on evolution of Hubin area has demonstrated advantages and disadvantages in the evolution process of open and closed, public and private, large-scale and medium and small-scale buildings in city-landscape boundary and adjacent blocks. It has provided basic guides for urban development in the future and also offered reference for the city-landscape boundary of other cities in China.
