Coordinating and promoting urban and rural-space development has been a new round of institutional change in the Province of Zhejiang since 2004. And this plan was fully implemented, which showed that the isolation between the urban and rural areas had gradually diminished. Meanwhile, an interaction that is dynamic, flexible and lasting is formed, and is embodied in change of landscape morphological structure in the surrounding villages. Bimen village locating at the intersect area of Anji Township, Huzhou and Yuhang District was the case. Recognized as ‘Bamboo village’ with flourishing bamboo industry, Bimen has witnessed the blooming process of interaction with urban areas in ecology, economy, technology and culture. However, there were challenges of agriculture and manufacture recession and population loss as well. This study focused on Bimen village’s adaptation to the resource exchange with cities, and put forward the infiltration model simulating the transformative process based on theory of landscape ecology and infiltration mechanism. By introducing the infiltration model, industrial upgrading and several patterns were proposed in the reformation design, such as adjusting the industrial structure, upgrading the local special bamboo crafting traditions, releasing space for activities, and establishing infrastructures on the interface. The new agriculture mode will strengthen the interface by orienting the Third Party Platform (i.e. Internet oriented platform) upon the old dynamic basis and will bring new vitality for economy development in Bimen village.
