The American Institute of Architects Honolulu Chapter invites the community to share in its passion for design and the built environment by attending its 13th Annual Architecture Month activities. This year’s events kick off on Tuesday, April 2, with a night of design presentations at The Honolulu Biennial’s Hub in Ward Village and continue throughout the month of April. Most events are free and open to the public – and there’s a little something for everyone.

In addition to our regular annual events – film nights on Oahu and the Big Island, the architectural firm crawl, and an architectural photography workshop – we’ve got some new events in the mix! We’re doing our first-ever Walking Tour of the Punahou School campus, including a partner session with the artist group, Urban Sketchers Oahu. We’re also hosting a service day, where the public is invited to join architects in cleaning up the Loi Kalo Mini Park.

Information on these and all other AIA Architecture Month events can be found at, or stop by the Center for Architecture on Fort Street Mall for more information.
