As a mauka gateway to Fort Street Mall, a mediatheque building is proposed. The skin reflects tree branches as the site was once a park. A “cut” thru the building maintains the essence of the old park as visitors wander in-between and around the two small buildings. Modernized to fit the new program of a “digital library,” the translucent skin allows the mediatheque to glow like a lantern in the Downtown + Chinatown district of Honolulu – a symbol of learning, working, and change.
