AIA Honolulu Architecture Month sub-committee, led by the President-Elect, falls under the umbrella of the Programs Committee, which is responsible for oversight of all AIA Honolulu committees and task forces. The Architecture Month sub-committee is responsible for organizing our free and low-cost activities planned for the public when celebrating Architecture Month during the month of April. These annual events were created to highlight the power of good design in making our communities better places to live, work and play and also generate a discussion of design in Hawaii.
Hundreds of island residents and visitors enjoy these architecture and design-related events each April. The hope is that, by elevating awareness of architecture, the public will be inspired by their surroundings on a daily basis. Staple events offered each year include the architectural walking tour, firm crawl and film night. Each event has its own sub-committee.
Architecture Month Sub-Committee Goals
- Actively start planning the events in November for April event dates
- Organize logistics for each event
- Organize with sister organizations for cross-event planning
- Each committee recruits volunteers, creates fliers and graphics and print coordination, etc.
Architecture Month Events
Architecture month typically includes anywhere from 6-10 AIA Honolulu events, along with a number of co-hosted programs and events that are developed in collaboration with other design-oriented organizations throughout the community. Examples of past Architecture Month events include, but are not limited to:
- PechaKucha Night of Design Presentations
- Architecture Firm Crawl
- Architectural Walking Tour

The Architecture Month sub-committee consists of AIA Honolulu members and other local design-minded professionals in the community who are interested in taking a role in planning any of the Architecture Month events. The sub-committee chair is the current AIA Honolulu Vice President, and each event that falls during Architecture Month is led by volunteer members.
