Hebei Pavilion


Hebei Pavilion

THEME: Charming Hebei, Beijing’s Garden

PAVILION: The Pavilion features five interconnected structures surrounded by a huge glass wall. The design is inspired by the province’s art of interior painting. The five buildings, like strands of DNA, form an integral “living being.” They symbolize the geographic proximity and close cultural ties between Hebei and Beijing.

CUISINE: There is no dining area listed for the Pavilion.

SHOPPING: There is no specific shopping facility listed for the Pavilion.

EXHIBIT: The Chinese philosophy about integration and symbiosis runs through the exhibitions in the Pavilion which trace the history, cultural and aesthetic traditions of the province and look into its future. Among the five geometric structures, called “cubes,” three are “theme pavilions.” In the first theme pavilion, visitors can see the historical origin of Hebei and Beijing, the Chinese capital which is mostly surrounded by the province. Many artifacts of historical importance are displayed. The second theme pavilion will show on high-tech LED screens the development of solar energy, low-carbon emission technology and other innovations in the northern China province. In the third theme pavilion, visitors will see a “dialogue” between heroes in 1976 Tangshan earthquake and Haibao, the Expo mascot. More than 240,000 people were killed in the 7.8-magnitude earthquake, but persistent Tangshan people rebuilt a whole new city on its debris with help pouring in from all over China, including Shanghai. There is also a film showing what provincial cities in Hebei may look like in 2076.
