For urban development in this technological age, the power of landscape cannot be underestimated. It can revitalize historical heritage by creating a more inclusive and sustainable public space. At a macro level, landscape connects communities to the surrounding green space, and cities to the greater nature. This is a connectivity which may even extend beyond national borders. Xi’an, as an open metropolis of the Belt and Road Initiative, can not only lead to a Silk Road of history and culture, of technological development and innovation, but also a green Silk-Road- corridor of environmental protection, by integrating landscape with high-tech development.
