During the summer of 2015, HIDesign’s 3D Lab took on the challenge of shaping a new innovation space at the heart of the Mānoa Campus. Three doctoral candidates in architecture—Landon Hamada, Reece Bonilla and Elena Lekhter—pooled their experience and talents to generate a complete interior design treatment for one of Mānoa’s most exciting new spaces. In just a few short weeks, the team studied the concept of innovation spaces, interviewed future users, and produced several alternative designs. In the end one was selected and the team assembled the design presentation, which included the conceptual background, drawings, detailed furniture specifications, and even a video showcasing the finished result. Steven Hill, IDSA, and 3D Lab director who coached the team throughout the process, commented, “It was very refreshing to watch a student team take on a professional challenge like this, and to attack it with such passion and excitement. I think the administration’s trust was repaid in full, through this team’s sense of service and aesthetic skill.”
