while the picturesque setting of honolulu features many beautiful outdoor parks, the city lacks sheltered areas of congregation which offer respite from the region’s hot sun. consequently, non-profit organization interisland terminal has commissioned tokyo-based atelier bow wow to design and plan ‘kaka’ako agora’ – an indoor pavilion that creates an accessible public space. currently seeking funding on kickstarter, the community based project will serve as a blank canvas for the region’s population.

 

facilitating discussion and entrepreneurship, as well as culture and performance, the scheme will transform former a 3,225-square foot warehouse into an event space hosting workshops and seminars. a mezzanine level overlooks the expansive volume, contributing additional floor space.

 

”kaka’ako’ shows an alternative way of creating public space – as it is based on collaboration’, explained yoshiharu tsukamoto of atelier bow wow.

 

the project is currently seeking funding on kickstarter, with the campaign ending on march 17th, 2014.
