The story begins 700 kilometers from Shanghai in rural Fuzhou

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

A cultural heartland in eastern China's Jiangxi province, Fuzhou is characterized by its 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.

However, help was at hand in the form of a Shanghai philanthropist.

A native of Fuzhou, the philanthropist was determined to prevent the destruction of these significant fragments of Chinese history. He conceived a bold plan to relocate 50 Ming- and Qing-dynasty villas and, ultimately, ten thousand 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, centuries-old villas were given new life as they were carefully reassembled, brick by ancient brick. In 2007, Aman began collaborating on a sensitive restoration project, securing the future of these historic marvels.

Now, 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.
