Pathways provide an underlying structure that weave the campus fabric. As internal arteries, they connect primary nodes and augment a campus-wise journey that highlights the natural environment of Mānoa.
The Campus Planning guidelines provide an in-depth study of a pedestrian-focused campus that supports and enhances the circulation experience. UH Mānoa is rich in history and hosts heritage paths which have been acknowledged and integrated into a contemporary navigation across the campus.
At a macro scale, circulation planning opens a conversation regarding how people experience their entrance into the campus, and how the campus relates to the surrounding neighborhood. As the study narrows down into individual pedestrian paths, and low and high speed and vehicular roads, we see the connection between priority nodes and opportunities for gathering spaces. The Campus Planning design guidelines support this strategy with a series of circulation studies and parking alternatives that support pedestrian movement within the campus boundaries, while keeping high speed traffic along the perimeter.
