From the restoration scene of a conference site to the images of the founding ceremony, from the pictures of the establishment of special economic zones to the data charts of poverty alleviation... In the exhibition hall, the "'Don't forget the original heart, keep in mind the mission' Chinese Communist Party History Exhibition" is passing more than 2,600 pictures and more than 3,500 pieces. The set of cultural relics, for the first time, shows the 100-year history of the Chinese Communist Party in an all-round, full-process, panoramic, and epic manner.
From the First Chinese Communist Party Memorial Hall in Shanghai to the Xiangshan Revolutionary Memorial Site in Beijing, the 1,600 revolutionary memorial venues all over China have connected the path of a century-old party from different time and space dimensions.
However, in the history of the Communist Party of China, there has not been a permanent pavilion that focuses on the history of the party and displays the road of the party's struggle in a panoramic manner.
"On the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China, the Chinese Communists need such a spiritual home to learn experience, wisdom and forward strength in the history of struggle." Professor Zhu Lijia of the Central Party School (National School of Administration) said about the struggle of the Communist Party of China. The concretized presentation of the Chinese Communist Party will also enable the outside world to more intuitively understand how the ruling party, the CCP, leads China in continuous exploration.
According to Chinese official media, shortly after the conclusion of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China made the decision to build the Chinese Communist Party History Exhibition Hall.
Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, President of the State, and Chairman of the Central Military Commission attaches great importance to the construction of the exhibition hall. He has listened to work reports many times and made important instructions to profoundly indicate the meaning and positioning, function and role, content and form of the exhibition hall.
In April 2018, Xi Jinping clearly pointed out after listening to the design ideas of the pavilion construction plan, “The architectural style must be solemn and solemn, with a sense of ritual like a palace; it must keep pace with the times, be unique, and compare to the current pavilion. The eyes lit up."
Some commentators said that this requirement determines that this red landmark will have both traditional and contemporary characteristics.
The Chinese Communist Party History Exhibition Hall, which has been completed today, reveals a solemn and unique temperament in both the macro style and the micro details.
The exterior adopts a traditional colonnade structure, inheriting the traditional style of Chinese architecture, which is square and dignified, simple and atmospheric, and the detailed modeling fully reflects the characteristics of Chinese culture. The internal structure meets the functional requirements of the times for the exhibition hall, and realizes the connection of commemorative, inheritance and practicality. .
This exhibition hall, which records the centuries of the big party, also reflects the spirit of inheritance and continuity in the design process.
For example, after several rounds of competitive selection, the proposal of Beijing Architectural Design and Research Institute Co., Ltd. stood out and became the main design unit of the exhibition hall. This design institute of the same age as New China participated in the design of the Great Hall of the People more than 60 years ago.
Another example is Chang Shana, a famous artist who participated in the classic architectural design of the Great Hall of the People and the Palace of National Culture in the 1950s. She came out again in her old age and personally led the team to participate in the design of the exhibition hall. Help with artistic creation.
In this regard, Chang Jian, a professor at the Zhou Enlai School of Government of Nankai University, said that the exhibition hall is a "materialized" history, but the spiritual inheritance is based on "people" as the carrier.
The inheritance in design and construction reflects the continuation of the concept and spirit, adding a more moving story to the red landmark.
The outside world also noticed that, compared to the intuitive experience that the exterior design brings to visitors, this national-level exhibition hall conveys a more profound meaning in the design concept.
——Overlooking the exhibition hall from the sky, the overall appearance of the "工" shape implies that the Chinese Communist Party is the vanguard of the Chinese working class, as well as the vanguard of the Chinese people and the Chinese nation.
—— There are 28 pillars on the east and west sides of the pavilion, which symbolizes the establishment of the new China by the Communist Party of China after 28 years of bloody battles.
—— "Faith", "Great Cause", "Tackling Fortifications" and "Dream Pursing" four groups of large sculptures correspond to the theme of "Four Greats" respectively, telling the struggle of the Chinese Communist Party for the happiness of the people and the rejuvenation of the nation in the past century.
——The opening of the special postal code "100100" in the theme post office of the exhibition hall not only records the completion of the Chinese Communist Party History Exhibition Hall on the 100th anniversary of the founding of the party, but also implies that the Chinese Communist Party is moving forward courageously towards the "two centenary" goals.
Observers believe that the profound meaning conveyed by the design of the exhibition hall comes from a summary of the history of the Chinese Communist Party.
Among them, the ongoing "'Don't Forget the Original Heart, Remember the Mission' History Exhibition of the Communist Party of China" reflects the history of the CCP's unremitting struggle, fear of sacrifice, the history of theoretical exploration, the history of benefiting the people, and the history of self-construction.
"The history of unremitting struggle, the history of theoretical exploration, and the history of self-construction are the mainstream and essence of the history of the Chinese Communist Party. Today's exhibition has expanded and enriched the existing'Three History' into the'Five History', reflecting the mainstream and essence of a century of party history. Get a more comprehensive explanation.” Dai Yanjun, a professor at the Central Party School (National School of Administration), said that the systematic summary of party history clearly reflects the value pursuit of the Communist Party of China. The value orientation of not afraid of sacrifice and the people's supremacy is more prominent. This comprehensive The overview will also deepen the outside world's understanding of the Chinese Communist Party.
It is often said that the most efficient way for travelers to learn more about the history of a city is to visit a museum.
For observers at home and abroad, to understand political parties with a century-old history, this approach may be equally applicable.
