1.Macao Garden

Location: Domestic Section, No. 25

Area: 697m²

Introduction: The front part of the Garden has a western style cloister and a mini square. The cloister has contracted decorative ribs and vases of classic orders. The black-and-white waved stone pave in Portuguese style in the mini square tells the story of the western culture coming from the sea 4 centuries ago. The building in South European style in the center of the Garden has colorful external walls, introducing the passion and joyful culture of South Europe. When looking at the Chinese cloister in the rear from the balcony of the building, one can see the red lacquer column, fan shaped window frames on the plant-wall, and the lattices with fret pattern forming a Chinese-style garden in implicit style. Such an arrangement also shows Macao’s uniqueness as the meeting point of western and Chinese culture, where the two ran into each other for the first time and finally merged.

2.Taipei Garden

Location: Domestic Section, No. 26

Area: 572m²

Introduction: The towering 101 building in Taipei Garden and the common ginkgoes in Xi’an form two intersecting circles in the heart-shaped lack in the center. The circles symbolize the solidarity, completion and one-mind, showing good will to the completion of the successive Flora Exhibition in Taipei and the Horticultural Exhibition in Xi’an. Such a design introduces the beauty of Taipei and Xi’an to the whole world. A cloister cuts through the Garden with a formative landscape made of three-dimensional glass fiber in the middle, symbolizing the snow mountain ridges of Taipei city.
