The subject dealt with includes the approach to conducting a townscape appraisal and the criteria use to examine the townscape quality, the physical components that constitute the townscape, the influence of human activities to the townscape qualities and the role of meanings in making the townscape memorable. Reference is made in various chapters to the historic townscape of the major cities in Malaysia in order to illustrate the qualities discussed.
