Guangzhou is the 3rd largest growing city in China's fastest growing area - the Pearl River Delta (PRD). The PRD region is home to 100 million people and is one of the most urbanized areas in the world. Guangzhou is often considered to be a cultural ‘desert’, but nevertheless, it has many hidden places which often offer positive surprises to the urban experience.
One such area is Redtory - a former packaging factory complex. It consists of numerous industrial buildings. Recently, “Red Plant” underwent a major revival in response to the occupation of many of its buildings by creative and enthusiastic individuals and organizations, who infused the complex with bars, restaurants, design studios and art galleries. The result is a unique and dynamic enclave for members of the progressive and independent art community.
