The AIA Honolulu Housing Committee was created to promote the development of safe, attractive, accessible, and affordable housing. It will provide leadership, advocacy, and education to the profession and the public in matters related to housing design.
Housing Committee Goals
The Housing Committee is made up of three primary pillars, all of which will work independently but also collaboratively. The committee will also be focusing efforts on Affordability of Housing in our local community and throughout the state of Hawaii.
(THINK) Research, Policy and Design
Leader: Questor Lau, AIA
Objective: To compile, analyze, and author content to promote innovation and progression of best practices.
(SHARE) Collaboration and Outreach
Leader: Kevin Wilcock, AIA
Objective: To connect a multidisciplinary network of AIA members, sister organizations, design professionals, and the general public to foster shared responsibility, resources, information, and vision.
(ACT) Envision and Execute
Leader: Sean Baumes, AIA
Objective: To implement research concepts and outreach feedback into built projects.
