"I think that the work of cultural heritage protection is a constant source of inspiration. It always brings fresh ideas and new perspectives," said Lyu Zhou, a professor at Tsinghua University's School of Architecture and head of the university's National Heritage Center.

Citing the Beijing Central Axis as an example, he said, "What first comes into our mind is perhaps just the shape of a line. However, as we know more about it, and discover its value, we may start to find that it bears unique testimony of the Chinese civilization. It reflects a kind of traditional perception and traditional aesthetic value."

This year's Beijing Culture Forum, co-organized by the Publicity Department of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, the municipal Party committee, and the government of Beijing, will be held from Sept 14 to 15 in the capital. Here are a series of talks with celebrities covering various fields such as calligraphy, literature, dance, and opera.
