The area occupied by Beijing 798 Art Zone was once the place for Beijing North China wireless joint equipment factory (namely,
718 Joint Factory), which was designed and built by the experts of former G.D.R in the 1950s. The Joint Factory was designed
to be built in 1952 , constructed from 1954,put into producSon in October 1957.
The designing task of the 718 Joint Factory was in the charge of a German architectural insStuSon in Dessau, which lied in the
same city with Bauhaus school at that Sme and they two shared the same architectural spirits whose main characterisScs
are meeSng the pracScal demands; bringing the technical and aestheSc property of new materials and new structure into
eﬀect; designing simply and composing pictures vividly with ﬂexibility. That is the genre what later called Bauhaus.
On The April ,1964, the supervisor units canceled the organizaSonal system of 718, established 706,707,718,797,798 and 751. The
former six factories of 700, 706, 707, 718, 797, and 798 were reorganized and incorporated into Beijing Sevenstar Science
and Technology Co., LTD in December, 2000. To cooperate the reforming plan of Dashanzi Area ,the Seven Group rented out
these plants for short term. A]racted by ordered designing, convenient traﬃc, unique style of Bauhaus architecture, many
art organizaSons and arSsts came to rent the vacant plants and transformed them, gradually formed a district gathered
galleries, art studios, cultural companies, fashion shops etc. As the earliest area where the art organizaSons and arSsts
moved in located in the original area of 798 factory, this place was named as Beijing 798 Art Zone.
