With the rapid development of cities, multiple cultures collide and communicate with each other. People are more in pursuit of novel and popular building and landscape forms in line with the public, while ignoring the cultural conservation and regional characteristics of the city itself. As the carrier of the city memory, the historical cultural block is the core of the city to show its unique building personality and cultural charm. From the perspective of architectural narrative theory, this paper took the architecture and landscape of Xuzhou Huilongwo Historical and Cultural District as an example, analyzed the usage and reconstruction process of the old buildings and structures, discussed the transformation and design methods of the district, and put forward suggestions for the protection and inheritance of local history and culture.
