MORE SESSION DETAILS
This poster showcases the winning design of an experiential learning project for graduate students at the University of Hawai'i-Manoa's Department of Urban Planning. The class research and design project for the client, the Hawai'i Office of Planning, focused on providing models balancing community needs with Honolulu's smart-growth goals and climate-change risk in long-range island planning. The TOD site, Waipahu, was selected for its location as a major bus hub and upcoming station for an in-progress, 20-mile rail corridor. Research included: state and community stakeholder interviews; social, physical, and economic flooding vulnerability assessments; and ongoing collaboration with the state's Interagency TOD Council.
