Abstract: Discourse in urban form restructuring has observed representational issues relating to cultural subjectivity and spatial justice. Context is appropriated within a multi-layered colonialism scoped in between Taipei and Quelang of the northeast Taiwan. The research responded to spatiality knowledge conjuncture of tangible (physical transcendence) and intangible (cosmological motif) rationalities that have relevancy of an `Others¿ in urban form. The research proposed a coevality model on urban form historicity as a Nature-Culture-Space representation. Arguably, Taipei¿s primordial urban form historicity is reposited; instead, spatiality origin(s) propounded on monad multiplicity is reflected from intercultural links in natural preconditions, cultural interpretations and spatial structural multiplicity. Thus, an embedded intelligibility in urban form analysed and approached from the syncretic urban morphology that elucidate a northeast spatial datum of material and immaterial dynamics, as an urban form representation. The research expanded conventional urban morphology, and proposed a structural syncretism for future interventions on urban form representation.
