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.
