With the development of the city and the increase of traffic volume, the urban viaduct has become an important means to solve the urban traffic problems. Meanwhile, the utilization of space under the viaduct has been ignored, resulting in a large number of lost spaces. This paper selects the space under the viaduct in Hua 'an li area of Wuhan city as the research object. Through observation and research, the paper puts forward the principles, strategies and design of space reconstruction, in order to provide reference for the design of space under the viaduct.
