798 Dashanzi Art District

"Dashanzi Art District" (Chinese: 大山子艺术区; Pinyin: Dàshānzi Yìshùqū) is the informal name of a part of Dashanzi in the Chaoyang District of Beijing that houses a thriving artist community, among 50-year old decommissioned military factory buildings of unique architectural style. It is often compared with New York's Greenwich Village or SoHo, but faces impending destruction from the forces driving Beijing's urban sprawl.
