Beijing 798 Art Zone

798 Art Zone is located in Dashanzi in the Chaoyang District of Beijing. This area was  718 Joint Factory, that was Beijing North China wireless joint equipment factory. The Joint Factory was designed by a German architectural institution in Dessau in 1952, and started to construct in 1954, in 1964, the supervisor units canceled the organizational system of 718, only six separate factories were established, they are 706,707,718,797,798 and 751. In 2000, these six factories were reorganized and incorporated into Beijing Sevenstar Science and Technology Co.LTD. The Seven Group rented out some empty plants afterwards, attracted by the convenient traffic and unique style of Bauhaus architecture, many art organizations and artists came to rent the vacant plants as their studios, gradually formed a district gathered galleries, art studios, cultural companies, fashion shops etc. Because the earliest area where the art organizations and artists moved in was the former 798 factory, all this area is then named Beijing 798 Art Zone.
