New Art Building for the Manoa Campus of the University of Hawaii

The University of Hawaii’s Fine Arts Building disposes platforms and enclosures at various levels on a self-bracing series of bents. Controlled light from the north, cross ventilation in all rooms, and the need for high and low ceilings determine the plan. The building is intended to grow and incorporates existing structures into its ambience.
