HPR Interview: Makiki Walking Tour with Docomomo
Dean Sakamoto, Docomomo Hawai`i Board Member, joined Chris Vandercook at Hawaii Public Radio (HPR) on September 30th to discuss the Makiki Walking Tour that will be taking place on October 11th. Dean explained that in the late 50's and 60's, Honolulu saw a demand for family homes. The building boom created opportunities for Hawai`i architects to build on everything they had learned about urban design. Now Docomomo Hawai`i, a non-profit dedicated to preservation of modern movement buildings, will lead a walking tour of nine apartment buildings, built in the mid-century.
