“This is the first time I come here with my child, and I discover that there are so many cultural relics and historic sites in our neighborhood. For example, Changchun Street is actually the Xianglai Street along which elephants walked in ancient times,” a citizen wrote on the visitors’ book at Guangnei Block Urban Revival Exhibition Center of Xicheng District of Beijing.

The center is an outcome of the campaign of cracking down on “illegally tearing down exterior walls of apartments” in Beijing in 2017.

Covering an area of 380 square meters, the center was transformed from 21 stores. It has four spaces of planning exhibition, reading, urban salon and open and sharing.

Uncle Xie was seen reading books at the reading space of the center and he spoke highly of the center: “The center helps people know more about Guangnei Subdistrict, enriches people’s cultural life and provides a good exchange place for nearby residents,” he said.

Tian Shenshen, a designer of Guangnei Block Urban Revival Exhibition Center, introduced that next the center will act as a government and citizen interaction center to enable more citizens to know about urban development background, urban development process and the work of removing non-capital functions and improving urban management and managing streets and alleys.
