Students Excel in Innovation + Imagination Challenge

Kris Jugueta (DArch candidate) and Cale Okamoto (BEnvD ’17) earned first and third place in the newly minted Innovation+Imagination Student Design Challenge.  The new competition launches this year in conjunction with the 25th anniversary of Hawaii’s Woodshow.  The exhibitions continue a long tradition of strengthening Hawaii’s forests and promoting the use of Hawaiian-grown tree species.  For the competition, high school and university students were supplied with similar bundles of donated local woods and challenged to create their own original designs.  Jugueta and Okamoto designed their entries in ARCH490 electives led by Lance Walters and Steven Hill respectively.  The exhibition can be seen at the Honolulu Art Museum School, Linekona Gallery through October 8th.  Admission is free.
