The European built form in Asia represents the presence of the colonial powers, and their social, legal, military, and economic privilege. It also symobolizes the developments and changes that the colonized countries went through in terms of city planning, architecture, transportation, culture, industrial and trading developments, etc. The editors conclude in this chapter that In the twentieth century it had gradually lost its original significance of strengthening the colonial powers but brought aesthetic and architectural value, as well as urbanization and modernization, to the colonized.
