A big thank you everyone who attended the Pau Hana and Kick-Off 2015, the event was a success!
On November 3rd, the Shade Institute held a gathering at the AIA Center for Architecture to introduce the Chinatown Urban Acupuncture Project. Dean Sakamoto introduced the Shade Institute and spoke about the group's purpose and intent for improving the community through architecture and design. Shade interns Woody Simpson and Justin Wong followed with a presentation of their research, analyses, and overall experiences through their participation in the program. The presentations were then followed by food and drinks with discussion around a scale model of Chinatown.
