”The City of a Billion Pines” presents a nature-based vision for Beijing’s future development. The exhibition shows what happens when city and nature come together to create an entirely new type of city, and creates a concrete understanding of what a city can be when nature becomes a complementary part to the built environment. Thus, a complete city.
"The City of a Billion Pines" also invites guests of the exhibition to adopt the exhibited trees, which will later be planted out in the Chinese metropolis. In this way, the citizens of Beijing can take action and work together to create the future of their city.
“The City of a Billion Pines” is part of SLA’s new initiative “A New Welfare”, a platform for dialogue and cooperation, and a continuation of SLA’s contribution to the Architecture Biennale 2014 “Empowerment of Aesthetics”. Read more about the exhibition on www.anewwelfare.com.
