After a successful start at transforming the Dashilar hutong area, Beijing Design Week has focused on another old courtyard area, Baitasi.

The design-week committee announced on Sept 24 that it will embark on Baitasi Remade, a collaboration between the government, enterprises, designers and local residents eager to regenerate the area.

Located near the West Second Ring Road, one of Beijing's busiest thoroughfares, the Baitasi settlement dates back to the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368). It remains of the last few low-rise residential areas in Beijing today, highlighted by the White Pagoda Temple and the Beijing Lu Xun Museum.
