Bund1919 is an art area converted from an old spinning mill. As its name indicates, the mill dates back to 1919. Located far away from central Shanghai, the area has no skyscrapers, but lively shopping streets半島1919(Bund1919)は以前の棉紡績工場を改造し甦らせたアートエリア。「半島1919」という名前は1919年に工場が建てられたことに由来する。上海市の中心から遠く離れているため周辺には高層建築はなく、小さな商店や食堂が並ぶ賑やかな商店街。建物は当時の様子を残し、内部の壁には工場として使われていた頃のスローガンが書かれている。

with small shops and restaurants. The mill’s atmosphere remains as it once was, with the factory’s slogan written on the wall inside the building.

Chinese artists such as Chang Jiang, Xue Song, Chen Qiang, Qu Feng Guo, Huang Yuan Qing, and Japanese Nobuo Sekine reside in Bund1919.  Shanghai Theatre Academy and China Central Academy of Fine Arts also have their studios. Japan Culture Village was also opened.

A famous example of an art area converted from old factories is 798 in Beijing. While 798 started spontaneously, Bund1919 was implemented by the government as an urban regeneration model, with an investment of over 8 billion CNY.

Not only an artists’ community, Bund1919 aims to provide everyone from children to adults with art education, hands-on experience of design, fashion, animation, games and films– where anyone can take part in creative activities. Design studios, art-related companies and offices, as well as an international center for arts and design are invited to reside.

This out-of-scale plan has just marked its take-off. Only one tenth of the 81,000 m² property surface is in use and the rest still remains under renovation. Visitors will witness the re-birth of the ancient mill into an art area.
