Standing at the strategic height of history and overall situation, the Eighteenth National Congress of the Communist Party of China formulated the strategic goal of coordinating and promoting the overall layout of the “five in one” in the new era. A reporter from Beijing Youth Daily noticed that among the 1,006 three-dimensional flower beds and small flower beds set up in important districts and road nodes in the city, many of the design concepts of flower beds are closely integrated with the overall layout of the “five in one”, which vividly reflects Beijing. New achievements and breakthroughs made in the process of comprehensively promoting economic, political, cultural, social, and ecological civilization construction.
Recording the development of the capital, “changing with each passing day”
The “changing” flowerbed located at the east gate of Shougang in Shijingshan District uses a photo frame as a carrier ingeniously. Two “photographs” respectively show the scenery of Shougang Park. Two landmark buildings: the water drying tower and the Shougang ski jumping platform.
Beijing Youth Daily reporter saw at the scene, under the water drying tower, a car galloping past, next to a boy riding a bicycle, and a windmill turning with the wind in the distance, vividly delineating the transformation of Shougang Park Shougang Ski Jump is the venue for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, and it is also a typical example of the reuse of industrial remains. The “snowflakes” on the big jump are dotted with silver chrysanthemums, which are exceptionally on the green background. Conspicuous. According to Wang Kaige, a landscape designer of the flower bed, the Shougang Park was once a significant “business card” of Beijing’s economy, with an annual output of nearly 10 million tons of steel at its peak, making outstanding contributions to Beijing’s economic development. Today, the 100-year-old Shougang is not welcoming old age, but with the “rebirth” brought about by the revival plan. The remnants of Shougang’s industry and the elements of the Winter Olympics complement each other, just like the theme of this flower bed “changing with each passing day”, which vividly reflects the capital Beijing. The development achievements of economic construction are a microcosm of Beijing’s transformation and development.
The “riding the wind and breaking the waves” flower bed located in the Beijing Banking and Insurance Industrial Park is also a vivid portrayal of Beijing’s economic construction. The flower bed is designed with an abstract sailing ship as a display image, combined with the logo of the insurance industry park. It shows a beautiful picture of using science and technology as the mast and economy as the sail, and cohesive strugglers pulling the ropes and driving the great ship of the era to sail in the wind. Designer Wang Kaige introduced that the “Chang’an Golden Axis” is an important spatial layout in Shijingshan District to promote the construction of the “Beijing West Industrial Transformation Demonstration Zone”, and the Beijing Banking and Insurance Industrial Park has become a “new financial landmark” in Shijingshan District. But the transition is not all smooth sailing, and sometimes it is necessary to “ride the wind and the waves”, which is the origin of this flower bed theme.
The “festival” of flower beds is a metaphor for social development
When citizens drive on the West Third Ring Road and pass by the Zizhu Bridge, they will see two groups of themed flower beds reflecting political construction: “Red Ceremony” “Flower bed” and “Red Star Shining” flower bed.
The northwest corner of Zizhuqiao District is the “Red Ceremony” flowerbed. From a distance, the floating “red flag” and the red “streamer” are particularly eye-catching, and the “peace dove” hovering on the streamer. The “Rainbow Bridge” under the flag symbolizes the vast fields intertwined with rice paddies, and the “agricultural machinery tractor” drives on the fields, cultivating, weaving the beauty of the earth, and heralding the joy of a bumper harvest in the future. On both sides of the flower bed are gear shapes of different sizes, which not only represent industrial progress, but also symbolize the vigorous power of the continuous development of New China.
In the southeast corner of Zizhuqiao District, a “Red Star Shining” flowerbed was erected. In front of the “Red Flag” is a striking “five-star” pattern. It is worth mentioning that the five-star pattern breaks the traditional single-color composition. The center of the five-star in the foreground is red, the edges are decorated with yellow, and the five-stars at the back are composed of yellow and red flowers, making the floating “red flag” and “five-star” patterns set off each other. . Bright flower balls are set off on both sides of the flower bed, making the overall color brighter. “These two groups of flower beds echo the theme of the celebration of’Welcome to the celebration and compose music together.’ The front of the flower beds is facing the side of the third ring road, and the highest point reaches 7 meters. At the same time, it takes into account the viewing angle of pedestrians along the road to set off a strong Festive atmosphere.” The flower bed designer said.
In addition, in the Qianmen Moon Bay of Xicheng District, and the Outer Garden of the Ditan Garden in Dongcheng District, there are themed flower beds that reflect cultural and social construction. The design of Qianmen Moon Bay “Red Fire China” flower bed highlights two cultural factors. One is Chinese red lanterns representing joy and auspiciousness, and the other is peony representing wealth and auspiciousness, showing a strong traditional cultural charm. A reporter from the Beiqing Daily saw on the scene that a hollow lantern shape in the middle displayed the theme of “1921-2021″ for the 100th anniversary of the founding of the party; a realistic red lantern on the right is more festive, while the three-color peony on the left is embellished with ” “, so that the flower bed has a strong traditional Chinese cultural charm. According to Xing Yu, a flower bed designer in Xicheng District and a senior engineer from Beijing Urban Construction and Garden Group Jindu Garden Chengmei Design Co., Ltd., the red lanterns use four-season begonia red, while the three-color peony uses four-season begonia red and four-season begonia respectively. There are three kinds of flowers: green leaf powder and golden leaf buddha grass. The green leaves of the peony flower use green five-color grass, interspersed with golden leaf buddha grass to show the leaf veins.
The “Ambilight” flowerbed in the outer garden of the Ditan Garden, Dongcheng District, the main scene is a colorful arch bridge, surrounded by flowers, and the middle of the bridge is decorated with Chinese flower window grilles and architectural silhouettes. Flowers pouring down from the bridge, covering the surrounding environment, showing dynamic power in the still scene, symbolizing the blessings of brilliance, flowing into the windows of thousands of households.
Flowers and butterflies, blue peacocks, fat birds, green water and green hills… A reporter from Beiqing Daily found that in the arrangement of the “July 1” flower beds, a large number of elements reflecting the beauty of Beijing’s ecological construction were integrated into the flower beds. The design allows citizens to experience the green development achievements of the capital Beijing while enjoying the beauty of the flower beds.
On the large lawn in the central green area of Financial Street in Xicheng District, 15 “flower butterflies” shuttled in the “flower belt”. The colorful butterflies are agile and beautiful, as natural and cheerful as in the forest, forming a natural picture. A beautiful picture of ecology. Flower bed designer Xing Yu said that this “dancing lightly” flower bed covers a large area, with small gray green pebbles or white pebbles paved between the flowers, so that citizens can walk into the middle of the scene and move around. Immersively experience the achievements of the construction of ecological civilization in the capital Beijing. “Every 5 butterflies are in a group, far and near, and the lines on each butterfly show its uniqueness through different flowers. One of the butterflies is designed with a viewing frame, and the citizens can stand on the white pebble. Take beautiful photos at close range.”
Step into the Huangchenggen Site Park in Dongcheng District, a “prosperity like brocade” flowerbed stands in front of the red wall. With the help of the red city wall and various plants, flowers and plants are created. Small landscape of ecological garden with birds. One of the most eye-catching is a huge blue “peacock”, it drags a long tail, stands tall in front of the red wall, and there are two “golden pheasants” next to it. According to the flower bed designer Ma Luyao, the most iconic part of the Huangchenggen Ruins Park is the red wall. During the design process, it was used as a natural “canvas”. In this context, five-color grass and hard blue were used. The color material creates a lifelike peacock shape. Around the golden pheasant and the peacock, there are also five blooming peonies, which are also shaped from red and pink begonias. The bottom flowerbed is supplemented by yellow sunflowers, red clusters of red, etc., through clever matching to create A vivid picture with the theme “A Beautiful Future”.
At the entrance of Xingfu Square in Mentougou District, there is a “green water and green hills” flowerbed. The undulating mountains, flowing Yongding River and other shapes are slowly unfolding in the “folding fan”… The relevant person in charge of the Mentougou District Landscaping Bureau introduced that this flowerbed shows the rapid development and changes of Mentougou under the leadership of the Communist Party of China, which means green mountains and green waters. Mentougou draws a beautiful picture scroll, composing a new chapter in ecological construction. “Considering the high temperature, humidity and heat in summer in Beijing, the flowers are selected from the four seasons begonia, five-color grass, poinsettia and other heat-resistant, water-resistant, and red-themed flowers.” According to the person in charge, in accordance with the principle of strict economy, The combination of perennial flowers and seasonal flowers uses varieties with longer flowering periods such as four season begonias and sage.
Walking into Pinggu District, in the Central Park on the west side of the district committee, Pinggu Big Peach is integrated into the “fruitful” theme flowerbed-the entire flowerbed is designed into a large flower and fruit basket shape, with flower and fruit basket handles In the shape of Pinggu peach blossoms, the basket presents elements such as Pinggu’s characteristic fruit big peaches, mountain red, apples, persimmons, and Beizhai red apricots.
