This artist's rendering shows the elaborate plans Aw Boon Haw had for his retirement mansion in Yongding County, Fujian. Terraced gardens with sculptural tableaux, pagodas, and pavilions would be built to grace the hill. Begun in 1946, the project was plagued with problems from the start due to contractors who did not complete tasks on time. From 1949, when the People's Republic of China (PRC) seized all Aw holdings in China, the mansion sat half-complete until 1989, when the PRC rehabilitated Aw Boon Haw's name and gave the property back to Sally Aw. She finished the house in 1994 in a less lavish style and donated it to the people of Zhongchuan Village to be used as a museum and community center. The gardens Aw Boon Haw planned were never built.
