AIA Honolulu Downtown Walk

On April 25, 2009, in celebration of Architecture Month, the American Institute of Architects held a free informational walk. Normally $15, this walk is well worth the nominal expense.

The foot traffic on any given weekday in downtown is reminiscent of LA's fast-paced freeways and rightfully so; we all have places to go and things to do (that were due the day before). If you were to take a Sunday stroll through the concrete jungle (at 1/4 of the weekday pace) and look up at what downtown has to offer architecturally, you would be truly amazed.

I myself have always wondered about old buildings in the Honolulu area and this was a great opportunity to learn more. Man... This walk/tour was incredible. There was a lot to see, ample time to admire, and the Docents provided a lot of interesting background information. If you haven't been on this tour yet, you should check it out!
