UH Mānoa embraces transformation and adapts existing campus spaces to improve the academic experience. As part of the UH Mānoa Campus Framework and Long Range Development Plan (LRDP), planning efforts focus on increasing the pedestrian flow across campus to improve recreation and collaboration spaces.
“The vision is for UH Mānoa to serve as a gathering place, celebrating both social and academic interaction, and modeling the synergy of cultural, historical, modern and future influences through its flexible, adaptive and responsive environment.”
The Gathering Typology design guidelines were developed as part of this effort, and serve as principles to find opportunities and design interactive spaces in our campus.
