Notes on the Geography of China: Beijing: Hutong, Siheyuan, and Highrises: Photo 5

world pictures China: Beijing: Hutong, Siheyuan, and Highrises

Here's the view from the south side looking northwesterly to the sunnier building on the north side of the courtyard.

The buildings are never connected by corridors, except in the proposals of architects seeking to build modernized siheyuan.

The trees, by the way, are typical. Conifers are avoided, because they're associated with tombs; instead, fruit trees are planted. Also, although there's a strong avoidance of even numbers in the design of these houses, the courtyard trees are an exception and are usually planted in a pair.
