The Heritage Center of the School of Architecture promotes the preservation of cultural and architectural heritage in Hawai‘i and the Asia-Pacific Region by providing expertise, research, documentation, and training opportunities; by disseminating heritage information to the general public; and by increasing interaction and cooperation on heritage issues within the Asia-Pacific area between government agencies, non-profits & the general public. The Heritage Center wrote the Getty funded Campus Heritage Plan for the Chancellor's office and designed the HUD funded Ka Papa loi o Kanewai Community Center for the School of Hawaiian Knowledge.
