Happy Earth Day!

Here’s to adaptive reuse of a piece of paradise. 
The Refinery Project brings together creativity, community, collaboration, re-use & re-envisioning. A work in progress located in the old historic Waialua sugar mill on the North Shore of Oahu, The Refinery Project inhabits an 11,000 square foot lot that was formerly part of a tow junkyard. “…at the center of the lot, lives an epic 70 foot plus banyan tree that has grown over man-made industrial objects making it part of its own unique beauty, where, in a sense invokes the idea that nature prevails. this notion of thought is the model for the refinery project... taking objects from the old world, making it new, and refining it in place where dreams are made.” (link to the PBN article 11/2012) 
Lan Thai transformed this bio-diesel bus into a mobile art gallery as part of the Refinery Project "eco-art" space near the Waialua Sugar Mill on the North Shore of Oahu.
