The question of what kind of city is more in line with human standards is constantly being addressed. In view of the above situation, the concept of “green city” and its planning and design methods were proposed. On the basis of considering the dilemma of modern urban construction, the development of the concept of “green city” was analyzed and the development trend of green cities at home and abroad was explored. In order to solve the urban dilemma, the advanced concept of “green city” is used to propose the principle of planning and design methods to seek more appropriate solutions for the development planning of cities in China.
