Architectural Walking Tour at Punahou School
This tour is a specially organized event that will be held by AIA Honolulu on this date only.
Docent-guided tours will explore a general history of the historic Punahou campus, sharing stories and features of several buildings.
Many of the docents have been involved in the planning and design of the campus, adding to their knowledge of the institution. Meanwhile, each tour focuses on Punahou’s sustainable initiatives and how the campus communities strive for the highest level of green design.
Over the course of 2 hours (about 1.5 miles), walkers will learn about architecturally significant historic and recent buildings including descriptions of Punahou’s sustainable initiatives and how the campus communities strive for the highest level of green design.
Condition of Route Disclaimer: The Punahou campus is built into a hillside with multiple level changes throughout the grounds. The walking route has been selected to provide the maximum level of wheelchair accessibility the campus can provide. Detours to ramps, elevators, and lifts are provided along the route, however, an expansive portion of all routes are steep, rough and uneven. Participants are to use their discretion when signing up.

Comfortable shoes, sunscreen and hats are highly recommended; walkers are encouraged to bring water and snacks to keep their energy up!
