There is a unique place where deserted factories have been transformed into a vibrant artistic zone – where the city’s tradition and heritage meet with cutting edge and diverse art and fashion. This is Redtory (红专厂).Guangzhou Redtory
The future of popular Guangzhou art and design factory Redtory looks in doubt. Housed in an old abandoned factory, Redtory is not only a creative space for artists and designers but also an area which contains various galleries and restaurants. Located near Guangzhou’s Central Business District, Zhujiang New Town, Redtory has found itself in the planners’ sights.
Redtory Art Park was originally built in 1956 as China’s largest can factory; now it’s a spacious art loft often referred to as Guangzhou’s 798. Decked out with bars and café and eateries in the same spaces huge machines used to operate half a century ago, Redtory brings a sense of lively commercialism and photogenic historical calm all at the same time. Stepping out the front gate, you’ll find you’re just two minutes away from majestic Pearl River scenery and another pleasant post-prandial stroll. If you want to avoid the pricey food and drinks inside the park, have a walk down Yuancun Siheng Lu outside the main gate; the whole street is packed with street food and more reasonably priced lunch options.
