Wuhan Old Buildings Tell New Stories
Cheng Guo 成果
In Wuhan, historic buildings such as Tan Hualin, the Hankou Customs House, and the Guiyuan Temple recount their stories to us through each of their bricks. These familiar names not only present a vivid picture of the history and the development of Wuhan, but also embody the unique spirit and temperament of the city.
Nowadays, with the development of a new artistic and cultural movement in Wuhan, these historic buildings are being renovated into new cultural landmarks.
1. Tan Hualin
Located in the northeast section of the Old City of Wuchang ( one of the three towns of Wuhan), Tan Hualin, with a total length of 1.2 kilometers, has enjoyed a history of 645 years—years full of profound cultural connotations and abundant human resources. After the renovation of the Old City, Tan Hualin will be transformed into a cultural street colored with art, tourism, and commerce. 2. 403 International Art Center
This center for the arts was renovated from the No. 403 double floor workshop of the original Wuhan Boiler Factory. Now it is an international art center— a pioneering cultural and artistic landmark, as well as a demonstration zone of cultural and creative cross-field integration development.
