Hanyang Iron Works, located in Hanyang, Wuhan, is perched on the right bank of the Han River at its confluence with the Yangtze River (Chang Jiang), opposite Hankou. In the early 1900s Hanyang became the site of China’s first modern iron and steel works as well as key arsenal city. The Hanyang Iron Works is a pivotal existence in the modern history of Wuhan. To pay respect, our priority is to inject new life into these old buildings while protecting them. The goal is to showcase a stunning industrial beauty that radiates a rich, humanistic culture that is based on ancestry.
