A man looks at a design to reassemble an historic house donated by Hong Kong action film superstar Jackie Chan in Changting county, East China’s Fujian province, July 14, 2015.

Jackie Chan sparked controversy after he donated historic Chinese sandalwood houses in the traditional Hui-style to Singapore University of Technology and Design in 2013. The star later decided to donate another Hui-styled piece of architecture to Changting, which has a history of 1279 years and is known for its cultural relics. Hui is a major Chinese architectural style from ancient times, with exquisite houses, ancestral halls and memorial archways as its most impressive embodiments. Hui is short for Huizhou, which is a region rich in history in southeastern China that now consists of the southernmost part of Anhui province and Wuyuan County in Jiangxi province.
