• Architecture: Best Buildings in Honolulu, Hawaii

    Buildings define the personality of a city, even in Honolulu, where the natural environment outshines our built one. Which buildings define Honolulu? We assembled a panel of 13 of Honolulu's most accomplished architects to decide. This video tour visits two of the buildings that made the list, including the Alexander & Baldwin building designed by C.W. Dickey and Hartwood, and the Liljestrand Residence designed by Vladimir Ossipoff. See the full list of buildings in our June 2012 issue.

    This is the first of a series of five separate First Amendment Audits we conducted on March 20, 2017. One of our subscribers requested that we conduct an audit of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Honolulu Field Office which is located in Kapolei, Hawaii so we decided to make this location the first audit of today's series of audits. There have been a lot of First Amendment Audits conducted at FBI field offices on the mainland with varying degrees of failure on the part of the agents. Several of which the agents actually assaulted the auditors and violated their civil rights in an attempt to stop them from photographing their buildings. With this in mind, we were very cautious in performing this audit and used public transportation to get to the location so that our license plates ...

  • Massive Fire in 36 Story Apartment Building in Honolulu - 3 dead

    At least three people died and 12 were injured Friday in a fire at a Honolulu high-rise that was not equipped with sprinklers, authorities said, and hundreds fled the giant condominium complex as smoke billowed from the upper floors. The dead were found on the 26th floor, where the fire broke out around 2:15 p.m. and then spread to the 28th floor of the Marco Polo residences, Fire Chief Manuel Neves said. Firefighters were searching the damaged areas to make sure no additional people perished. The 36-floor building near the tourist mecca of Waikiki was built in 1971, before sprinklers were required. "Without a doubt if there were sprinklers in this apartment, the fire would be contained to the unit of origin," he said. Four of the injured, including a firefighter, were hospitalized in...

This is the first of a series of five separate First Amendment Audits we conducted on March 20, 2017. One of our subscribers requested that we conduct an audit of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Honolulu Field Office which is located in Kapolei, Hawaii so we decided to make this location the first audit of today's series of audits. There have been a lot of First Amendment Audits conducted at FBI field offices on the mainland with varying degrees of failure on the part of the agents. Several of which the agents actually assaulted the auditors and violated their civil rights in an attempt to stop them from photographing their buildings. With this in mind, we were very cautious in performing this audit and used public transportation to get to the location so that our license plates could not be run by an agent that wanted to identify the auditor. This is the very first audit of an FBI field office that I have seen that was a complete success. There were plenty of agents at the office because it was conducted on a weekday, just after lunchtime, and it appeared that there were two security guards working at the gatehouse. No one approached me during this audit at all. The security officers stayed in the gatehouse and watched me through the windows but never came out to investigate what I was doing. None of the agents came out of the building either which completely surprised me. I spent about 45 minutes on this audit, which I have shortened down quite a bit. This was the first time using a new external microphone with a new "deadcat" windscreen. It was a windy day so I was impressed that most of the wind noise was blocked out quite well. It would be impossible to block out all wind noise without blocking out the voice of the auditor as well. I think we reached a reasonable compromise with the new windscreen. This audit was a complete PASS. Unfortunately, all of the audits that were done today were not as successful and we had a few that were complete failures which we will be uploading shortly.

At least three people died and 12 were injured Friday in a fire at a Honolulu high-rise that was not equipped with sprinklers, authorities said, and hundreds fled the giant condominium complex as smoke billowed from the upper floors. The dead were found on the 26th floor, where the fire broke out around 2:15 p.m. and then spread to the 28th floor of the Marco Polo residences, Fire Chief Manuel Neves said. Firefighters were searching the damaged areas to make sure no additional people perished. The 36-floor building near the tourist mecca of Waikiki was built in 1971, before sprinklers were required. "Without a doubt if there were sprinklers in this apartment, the fire would be contained to the unit of origin," he said. Four of the injured, including a firefighter, were hospitalized in serious condition, officials said. Karen Hastings, 71, was in her 31st floor apartment when the fire broke out. She smelled smoke, ran on to her balcony and looked down to see flames below her. "The next thing we know the fire causes the windows to blow out, and we can see glass flying all the way down," Hastings said. "I says, 'my goodness, anybody who is outside is going to get clobbered with glass.'" Then, she said, "the fire just blew up and went flying right out the windows. And that was like a horror movie. Except it wasn't a horror movie, it was for real." She and a neighbor ran through the haze down 14 floors until they found a safe stairwell to get some air. "We actually saw a person laying on a ledge and I don't know whether he made it not," Hastings said. The building is vast and wave-shaped, and has several sections. The blaze was mostly confined to a single section, and only the units immediately above it and to the side of it were evacuated, while many residents stayed inside. The blaze was still burning some four hours after it broke out as the sun set, but it was down to mostly embers by then, official said. Most evacuations went calmly and smoothly, security guard Leonard Rosa said. Cory La Roe, who is from Florida and stationed in Hawaii with the Air Force, works night shifts and was asleep when siren sounds woke him at about 2:15 p.m. "First thing, I was kind of disoriented and confused about what was going on, so I looked out my window and saw people running away from the building, looking back toward it." La Roe said he didn't hear any verbal announcements and there were no flashing fire alarm lights in the building, but "after I saw people running out and went out to the hallway, I knew it was a fire alarm." He saw an elderly couple come down that looked "sooty" who were taken to the hospital. He saw other people brought out on stretchers. He didn't realize that the building didn't have a sprinkler system and was surprised that was the case. "That's one thing that I wasn't aware of prior to moving in," La Roe said. "It was definitely shocking for me to know that there weren't any sprinklers installed in the building." Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell said the city needs to look at passing a law requiring older buildings be retrofitted with sprinklers. "The biggest argument is the affordability," Caldwell said. "Residents have to pay. It's pretty expensive. But if it saves a life and it's your life, it's worth the cost." No one from the building said they remembered recent fire drills, but Anna Viggiano, who lives on the 6th floor, said there were some after a 2013 fire that broke out two floors above her. She said since then she doesn't hesitate to evacuate when she hears the alarm. "It was scary," she said. "It was terrifying."

The Bishop Museum was founded in 1889. The museum is actually a group of buildings each housing its own unique exhibits. The Hawaiian Hall is currently undergoing renovation. It is scheduled to reopen in Summer 2009. Parts of the building are now open to the public: See the Kahili room, which houses the elegant feather standards, which were the traditional symbols of the Hawaiian ali'i (rulers). Upstairs, you will find the "Peoples of the Pacific" exhibit displaying costumes, masks, carvings, weapons, tools, and miscelleous artifacts from the Pacific region. Don't miss the Historic Picture Gallery on the second floor which displays art from the Bishop Museum's extensive collection. The Castle Memorial Building contains traveling exhibits which change every few months. Quite often there are exhibits there that are geared toward children. The current exhibit features Megalodon. Past exhibits included: Dinosaurs, the science of rollercoasters, sea monsters, and health-related topics. The Science Adventure Center focuses on the geology/geography of Hawaii - volcanoes, plants, and animals. The Science Center has many exhibits that are interesting to both children and adults. The centerpiece of the museum is a walk-in volcano housing exhibits about the geology of volcanoes. You can see and touch the different types of lava rocks. There is a tunnel and a small slide for children. Upstairs, you can look inside the mouth of the volcano and see the "molten lava". Children can push buttons to show the effect of magma and gas on the volcano. Every 15 minutes or so the volcano will erupt! A "kid-favorite" at the Science Center is the "Make your own wax volcano" exhibit. By turning a knob in one direction, you can make hot wax erupt and slowly build a volcano. Another kid-favorite is the large tank of water with a deep-sea submersible that you can control. The attached video camera allows you to "see what it sees" on the screen in front of you. The Planetarium has an interesting exhibit on global warming and has shows scheduled throughout the day.
