Dashanzi Art District, is a part of Chaoyang District in Beijing China Capital, housing a thriving artist community among 50-year old decommissioned military factory buildings of unique red bricks 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 growth. The area is often refered as 798 Art District or Factory 798 although technically, Factory #798 is only one of several structures within a complex formerly known as Joint Factory 718.
