Xi'an Dahua Cotton Mill Renovation

(In the frame of CADG)

The site of Dahua Cotton Mill is just on the side of Xi'an‘s Daming Palace Ruins Park which is the world historical heritage of Tang Dynasty.  And the cotton mill  itself which was founded in 1935 is the earliest modern fabric factory in northwest China. Therefore, under the principle of retaining the traces of city and collective memories in the site, it is important to show the potential of these industrial buildings which could involve multiple city life and functions to all people through the design.
