Min Yuan Terrace

On June 17, 2012 by Design China

The Min Yuan Terrace Cultural Creative Block is located in the old British concession in Tianjin, China. Designed by Chinese architect Shen Liyuan, it was built in 1939 by Ji’an Company (a well-known real estate developer at the time) and, although most original features have been well preserved, each of the remaining structures were in dire need of restoration and revival. This feat was bravely undertaken by Tianjin Historical Architecture Restoration and Development Co. Ltd. in 2009; ever since, the area has gradually flourished into an historical block that “revitalises and breathes both culture and history”. Here are a few shots of a creative fair (organised by Nathan Zhang of brandnü) that recently took place in the area.
