As an international entrepreneur and architect, Carole built a successful design company that spanned the globe in the 1980s operating out of Beijing, thanks to her benefactor, Dr. Armand Hammer.
Carole along with her husband Sheldon spent eight more years doing business in China and completing the project. The team found investors and lenders. They built their vision into the Beijing Asia Hotel. They created a design team with Chinese, Japanese, Hong Kong, and Thailand joining her as the first American woman to design and develop a modern, Western hotel. Carole and Sheldon also built apartments and office buildings in downtown Beijing. It’s been 36 years in the making. As a result of their experiences, she decided to write this book. So, what happened when they moved back to the US? This is their story!
Tune in to hear her experiences working and living in China.
