Heritage conservation is becoming a comprehensive failure in China, because there are more and more heritage conservation plans, parallelling with the fast reduction of heritage sites. Meanwhile, even if the announced heritage conservation site has suffered from varying degrees of destruction, such as traditional industrial factorie. With the evolution of industrial life cycle and population structure, built urban areas have left a lot of idle industrial space. Industrial land-use and industrial factories and plants attached to the land are facing with transformation and reuse. Obviously, among the many reuse models, pushing down and redevelopment is the simplest and economical way. However, the built environment is not only the memory of the residents, but also the city; this memory is inherited in the form of place. This study focuses on the issues that, how to comprehensively consider the form and functions of built environment, so that it can not only meet the human needs of the present generation or even in the future, but also inherit the human creation of past. Specifically, this research try to explore the transformation of idle industrial factories in the built-up urban area into a public rental housing, in combination with the change of population structure in Shanghai and the demands of the new generation of innovation and entrepreneurship groups. This research direction is extremely in line with the current Chinese urban current situation, problems, challenges and policy-orientation.
