In Remembrance

Aloha Mr. Frank Haines, FAIA ME

It is with sad hearts we inform you that longtime AIA Honolulu member and past president, Frank Haines, FAIA ME, age 96, passed away on Thursday, August 10, 2017.

Mr. Haines was born in Bethlehem, PA and raised in Stanford, CT. He studied architecture at Princeton University, served in the Navy during WWII, and finished his schooling with a master's degree in architecture from MIT upon his return.

He was first introduced to Hawaii through the military but was invited back by Cyril "Cy" Lemmon, founder of Architects Hawaii (AHL), to work for him at Lemmon Architect, which got started out of his garage. Mr. Haines career in Hawaii architecture spanned six decades and he was one of the founders of modern architecture in the State. He became the president, and later chairman, of AHL, a professor at the UH Manoa School of Architecture, and the author of two books on Hawaii architecture.

Mr. Haines was an active member of AIA Honolulu since 1953 and in 1960 he became the Chapter president.  Due to his interest of historic buildings he co-founded our popular Saturday walking tour over 56 years ago, and still led them at a fast clip, up until his death. In 2015 the Historic Hawai‘i Foundations gave Mr. Haines the prestigious Preservation Commendation Award for this walking tour.

It was a true honor to have met and known Mr. Haines and he will be missed dearly by our AIA Honolulu members. Our deepest condolences to his family and friends.

Mr. Haines is survived by two of his three children. His wife and a daughter preceded him in death. Services are pending, and we will notify you when more information is available.

Hawaii is home to the most isolated metropolis in the world, Honolulu, and, just like any other community, we depend on our neighbors, Kauai, Molokai, Lanai, Maui, and Hawaii for social, economic, and cultural support. Isolation, and the conditions associated with it, breeds a unique set of circumstances across our island chain. Public, private, nonprofit, activist, neighbor island and volunteer groups must continue to work together. Developing stronger partnerships with our neighbors is paramount to the success of the Hawaiian Islands.
