Most want to live in a people-friendly environment with open space, affordable quality housing, and even preserved farmland for sustainable agriculture. Urban design can be a grassroots activity, with communities participating with design professionals. In Honolulu, that doesn't always seem to happen. Join us as we look at who is shaping Honolulu. Panelists: Jennifer Darrah, UH Lecturer and Graduate Faculty Affiliate,  UH Department of Urban and Regional Planning Prof. Luciano Minerbi, and from the same department, PhD Candidate, Annie Koh.

  Workplace and classroom design are changing - and supporters of the new collaborative space model say it's all with better thinking in mind. Next on Town Square, we'll talk with Bettina Mehnert, COO of Architects Hawaii and Mahina Hugo, head of school at La Pietra about how reconfigured  work and class spaces are reshaping the ways we learn and do business.
