Focusing on Historical Buildings and Shopping on Fort Street Mall, the ongoing exhibition “Fort Street Mall Now..Then?” continues its highlight about transportation modes, from then to now, and how they are being envisioned for the future.
Please join us for Part III of this ongoing exhibition on Friday, May 5th at 6PM, at the AIA Honolulu Center of Architecture. A group of distinguished speakers will reminisce and share hopes for the future.This event opens with a visual narration by city-walker, Jack Gillmar, on how he remembers walking through Fort Street Mall as a little kid with his parents.
Jack will be joined by John Hara, FAIA, to talk story on the changes that they have seen in the area through the years. Bill Chapman, Assoc. AIA, Dean of the School of Architecture, will share his perspective on the current state of Fort Street Mall and identify historical buildings that are worth preserving. Professor Karl Kim, UH Mānoa Urban and Regional Planning Department, will also speak on how sea level rise may impact Fort Street Mall in the years ahead.
