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.
