Abstract: With the post-industrial movement, major Chinese cities such as Chengdu are now undergoing the transformation of various industries. Since most of the old industrial factories lack economic values and create pollutions in the urban city, it is inevitable that the factories will be relocated and redeveloped, freeing up the land for new developments. In the case of Chengdu, most of the factories were demolished or relocated during the late 20th century, so there was not much of an industrial heritage left in the city then. However, with the appearance of “Wu Xi Suggestion” (无锡 建议)1 which approved the state protection on industrial heritages starting in 2006, together with the success industrial redevelopment such as Beijing 798 and Shanghai “the bridge 8” (八号桥), cities started to combine industrial redevelopment and new industries, in the hopes of achieving both economic value and industrial heritage conservations. Thus began the top-down industrial conservation project in Chengdu. This dissertation looks into the industrial heritage conservation movement in Chengdu, investigates the reason for the new movement and the current industrial heritages situation in the city. Through the case study of top-down conservation project “Eastern Suburb Memory” (东郊记忆), this dissertation will propose three key aspects (spatial quality, artifacts and value) of the industrial heritages as the key point of industrial conservations. With a thorough analysis of the three aspects in relation with the “Eastern Suburb Memory”, the government’s inability in leading the top-down projects will be further elaborated upon. The conclusion is that for the benefit of future industrial conservations, it is vital for the government to adopt the proposals in the three areas aforementioned.
