AMAN, SHANGHAI

THE STORY BEGINS 700 KILOMETRES FROM SHANGHAI IN RURAL FUZHOU

  • Placering: SHANGHAI
  • Arkitekt: Kerry Hill Architects
  • Land: Kina
  • Region: Asien og Stillehavsområdet

A cultural heartland in eastern China's Jiangxi province, Fuzhou is characterised by ancient camphor forests and historic villages. When plans for a much-needed reservoir were approved in 2002, the fate of these remnants of Old China appeared to be sealed
HELP WAS AT HAND, HOWEVER, IN THE FORM OF A SHANGHAI PHILANTHROPIST

A Fuzhou native, the philanthropist was determined to prevent the destruction of these important fragments of Chinese history. He conceived a bold plan to relocate 50 Ming- and Qing-dynasty villas and ultimately ten thousand of the trees – some dating back a millennium – to Shanghai
THE PLAN WAS MONUMENTAL AND AT TIMES DANGEROUS – BUT PERSEVERANCE PREVAILED

As the trees began to flourish in their new home, the centuries-old villas were being given new life as they were carefully reassembled, brick by ancient brick. In 2007, Aman began collaborating on a sensitive restoration project, and the future of these historic marvels was secured
A DECADE ON, AMANYANGYUN IS APPROACHING COMPLETION

The ethereal camphor forest sets the tone for a peaceful, introspective retreat, where old and new, natural and manmade, coexist in perfect harmony. A notable piece of China's past has been preserved for generations to come – and Amanyangyun is a living part of that history
