'798' is located in the Dashanzi area, to the northeast of central Beijing. It is the site of state-owned factories including Factory 798, which originally produced electronics. Beginning in 2002, artists and cultural organizations began to divide, rent out, and re-make the factory spaces, gradually developing them into galleries, art centers, artists' studios, design companies, restaurants, and bars. It became a 'Soho-esque' area of international character, replete with 'loft living', attracting attention from all around. Bringing together contemporary art, architecture, and culture with a historically interesting location and an urban lifestyle, '798' has evolved into a cultural concept, of interest to experts and normal folk alike, influential on our concepts of both urban culture and living space (text from 798space.com). Miscellaneous architects, artists and designers have made this area into an interesting Chinese cultural playground.
