Docomomo Hawaii Presents: What Makes Architecture "Hawaiian"?





Join Docomomo Hawaii in welcoming University of Oregon Historic Preservation graduate student Lauren Radwanski to find out more about one architect's vision of regionally-adapted residential architecture.
Lauren will present her thesis proposal “Paradise Sought: Identifying and Understanding Mid-Century Hawaiian Regionalism Through the Study of Manoa Valley’s Woodlawn Terrace Place”
Though best known for his collaborations on institutional projects architect Harry Seckel was enamored with what he called "environmental living." The Woodlawn Terrace subdivision, which he designed and developed on his own, is his built treatise on the topic.
Come - and bring your vision of what the region's architecture has been and will be - We hope Lauren's presentation will be followed by a healthy discussion.
When and Where:
Tuesday, March 26th at WCIT Architecture - 725 Kapiolani Blvd in Honolulu at 5:30pm.

Wine and Pupus will be provided and we can validate your parking for the attached lot.

 Check Docomomo Hawaii's Facebook page for updates.
