dc.description.abstractMany cities were shaped by dynamics political and commercial factors and manmade layers whereas other capitals have been modeled spontaneously by natural influence, London is great sample of this approach and was described as a natural city planned over decades by many hands with great appreciation to natural terrain. Contrary mode is obvious in China where several factors behind the distinct identity of Chinese architecture and urban planning. Among those influences are the Metaphysics Philosophies or Emperor guidance who encouraged uniformity in many aspects in China including city planning. The aim of this paper is to highlight the impact of various forces and mankind dogmas in shaping up a unique character of famous capitals. Hence London and Beijing are the two contradictory case studies subject to deep analysis in parallel with other theories such as Yin - Yan and Fengs Shui principles, to examine their impacts on urban planning in China.en_US
