This volume is published in conjunction with the 'Green Art Project' series presented by the Beijing Center for the Arts, which consisted of interdisciplinary art exhibitions, documentary screenings and forums. The exhibition 'Shan Shui: Nature on the Horizon of Art', featuring large-scale installations by Maya Lin, Wang Jianwei and Zhou Wei, explores different perspectives on the current environmental crisis and ways to bring about positive change. '3D City: Future China', the second part of the project, gathers leading architects and artists, experts and scholars on urban planning, city ecology and environment, decision makers from government and enterprises, in envisioning an ideal living environment for the future. Artist statements and biographies are included. Forum proceedings are provided.
