With the new type urbanization, the Chinese urbanization rapidly develops under the industrialization accelerating development. In 2011, the Chinese urban population exceeded the agricultural population at first time in thousands of years, and it marked a new development stage that China had began to enter the period of urban social orientation. This also means that the characteristic of rural society which sustains thousands of years has changed. People's mode of production, occupation structure, consumer behavior, life style, concept of value has changed greatly. The life and production mode transform from agricultural production to urban-rural concurrent business behavior. These essential changes greatly broke the original stability of rural communities, and workers of rural migrants and those who go backwards and forwards between rural and urban areas exerts a great influence on the style structure of traditional communities. The traditional community can not rely on their own strength to deal with the challenge, and can not complete the system structure transform of their own. Under our country polarization development of urban and rural areas for a long time, the revival of the traditional community is ignored, therefor the traditional village style no longer exists, and what is showed in front of people is the scene that is lack of the design and planning, additionally, there is no way that residents have nostalgia. I have a deep feeling after interviewing main streets of Guoyang Community. We should calm down to trace the root of ancient village of traditional architectural culture and reflect advantages and disadvantages of the current rural construction pattern to find a way for the protection and the renewal of traditional architecture.
