Dashilan is one of Beijing’s historic and symbolic districts.
Located at the southern end of Tiananmen Square, it is home to shops, restaurants and theatres. The conserved buildings in this district are a blend of Ming and Min-Guo style (European style).  AREP Ville has defined the urban layout of the district and has restructured the conserved buildings and then suggested designs for new buildings, blending contemporary architecture and traditional Beijing architectural styles.
