As landmarks of the International Horticultural Exhibition 2019 Beijing China, the China Pavilion and the Inter
national Pavilion are attracting large numbers of visitors thanks to their unique designs and functions.
Covering an area of 5 square kilometers, the expo is being held in the capital’s Yanqing district.
Following the ancient wisdom of the Chinese people, the China Pavilion takes the shape of a green b
uilding that can “breathe” and has “life”, as described on the exhibition’s official website.
Core portions of the pavilion are composed of terraced fields. Fun
ctions of both irrigation and insulation are at play, and th
e fields help reduce energy consumption of the building while also offering heating or cooling functions.
