The Hawaii Island Section of the Honolulu Chapter of the American Institute of Architects invites the public to free double-feature screenings of films focusing on the process of design in celebration of Architecture Month.

The brilliance of great design is that it can solve multiple problems, create beauty and point to a positive future. Design & Thinking by director Mu-Ming Tsai and 3 warp-speed architectural tales, a TED talk by Bjarke Ingels, offer inspiration to those willing to take on and support that future.

The films will be shown at the W.M. Keck Observatory Headquarters, Hualalai Learning Theater in Waimea on Thursday, April 27, at 6 p.m. Call Aaron Spielman at (808) 937.5511 for more information.

The films will also be shown Hawaii Innovation Center at Hilo, Conference Room on Friday, April 28 at 5:15 p.m. For more information, call Terry Cisco at (808) 937.8953.

(A film night in Kona was held in mid-April as previously announced in early March.)


W.M. Keck Observatory Headquarters is located at 65-1120 Māmalahoa Highway. The Hawaii Innovation Center 117 Keawe St.
