Clear blue skies made for a great opportunity to do some exploring. An easy ride on the 909 bus (which seemed to sport more technology than any I've previously ridden on)
The 798 Art Zone was built as a joint factory complex between the PRC and the Soviet Union in the 1950s. Its buildings and layout were designed by East German engineers and have a distinctive appeal. After the electronics and military manufacturing came to a close the area saw a rebirth as a community for artists and studios.
A maze of interconnected pipes still remains with random steam discharges throughout the area.
I only ventured into one or two of the galleries themselves and while I'm no expert I did enjoy what I saw.
