The area occupied by Beijing 798 Art Zone was once a factory designed and built by the experts of former G.D.R in the 1950s. After 2000 vacant factory spaces were rented by art organizations and individual artists, attracted by ordered designing, convenient traffic and unique style of Bauhaus architecture. They transformed them, gradually forming a district of galleries, art studios, cultural companies, fashion shops etc. As the earliest area where the art organizations and artists moved in were located in the original area of 798 Factory, the place was named Beijing 798 Art Zone.
