This design draws inspiration from the lava flows that has created the Hawaiian Islands.
As seen its layout reflects the natural sinewy flow of magma. Strong tones of red, orange
and yellow scattered throughout the space as one would see if they were watching the
landscape of the Islands being created. The entire project is elegantly lit with lava cloud
lanterns like the lights seen in the surronding China Town and during the well celebrated
Lantern Festival of Honolulu. It is made with primarily post consumer recycled material. This
center of architecture illuminates the power and beauty of design and how it can transcribe a
geological history, share the story of a culture and how it can inspire us.
