Since the policy of reform and opening has been implemented in China, productivity is liberated, economic become prosperous, comprehensive national strength has been improved ,China is  developing toward a modern and strong country.

Urbanization has entered a rapid development period as other industries. The people's living conditions improved, therefore, materials needed for life have improved. But unfortunately, these achievements are resulted from destruction and disappear of countless history witness such as traditional ethnic culture architecture. Taking Zunyi Conference site as an example,  if the old buildings five or six hundred meters away from the Conference site was ( Red Army street) reserved and repaired,  the brand of Zunyi Conference site and related industries benefits it brings is not less than National wine Maotai.

Lots of cities without history, culture and characteristics appear, which will bring "homogeneity" phenomenon, and inevitably lead to "similar cities".  Although this phenomenon has aroused people's attention, been questioned by people, instead of prevented, it becomes escalating.  Inheritance and innovation of traditional ethnic architecture,and the development and protection of city construction is disoriented.

In addition, the tourism industry in our country has got gratifying achievements after more than ten years of development,  and made contribution to the local social economy, with the further advance of leisure resort tourism, tourism planning and development will usher in a new round of tide. However, many pitfalls exists in the current tourism planning in our country, for example, the development of tourism scenic area is very extensive, for example, many of them only stay in the development and utilization of original resources,haven’t analyzed the resources of the area carefully, utilization of characteristic resources is not enough, tourism planning and design are lack of creativity, and thus led to " similar landscapes ". Analyze its deep reason, I think that is because of the lack of cultural connotation and creativity. 

People are worried the problems of " similar cities " and " similar landscapes ", because no way to prevent them from happening,  me also. As a planning and design worker, I feel deeply uneasy.

Over the years, together with my colleagues,with the mission of changing the " similar cities " and       " similar landscapes ", we determined to conquer the disease. Through the unremitting exploration and practice, we achieved some results, I find a way out of the fog. That is adhering to National Modernization, Modern Nationalization. Operation mode is integrating majors related to  planning&design as a whole , assembly line work, and one-stop service. At the same time, advocating creativity and taking it as the core, getting rid of the stale and sustaining innovations,on the premise of keeping the national characteristics and inheriting of traditional culture. Details are elaborated in the book.

It's difficult to achieve anything without support,in order to share with like-minded people, I select some data, research results, presentations reports, academic articles, interview records, project planning case, etc.,which are accumulated over many years, put them in one book. I hope this book can open the subject for discussion. Error is inevitable due to my ability. Your comment is appreciated!
