The central thesis of this paper is that there is a close relationship between environment and culture. The development and evolution of a city culture in Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong, depended very much on the interaction of two environments: the natural and the artificial. The paper will first examine and analyze the cultural significance of a man-made environment, as represented by the walls of the city. It will then analyze the natural environment, focusing on the impact of waterways and waterfronts in the evolution of a city's culture.
