UH Manoa School of Architecture receives NCARB Grant

UH is one of 3 schools that received a grant from NCARB (National Council of Architectural Registration Boards) in 2010.
The University of Hawaii at Mānoa's proposal will give students the opportunity to work alongside architects who specialize in honoring and preserving the rich history and culture of Hawaii. Students will work with practitioners, actual clients, consultants, and community and government officials to provide architectural services with a strong emphasis on sustainability for various projects. One project will determine the potential for restoring 113 houses at an abandoned pineapple plantation. Two of the participating firms are WCIT Architecture and Minatoishi Architects, both based in Honolulu.
 Not sure what's happened since, but it sure sounds like an interesting project.
