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.
