Themed "Beautiful Beijing, Harmonious Life", the Beijing Garden is intended to interpret the harmony between man and nature. Siheyuan, or quadrangle courtyard, is re-interpreted through the integration of modern design concepts with traditional architectural elements.
Every flower, every stone, every blade of grass and every tree here tell about Beijing's history and culture and local people's life, with which visitors are expected to identify and through which they will have a better understanding of the Expo's theme "From the earth, for the Earth".
The garden has a layout of a typical quadrangle courtyard, featuring “one axis, four attractions and five zones”, which gives people a composed, formal, upright and restrained image. The entrance area, courtyard, and backyard are the major areas for displaying horticultural works.
