Mayors' Institute on City Design

The University of Hawai’i Community Design Center, in partnership with the Institute for Sustainability and Resilience, hosted a session of the Mayors’ Institute on City Design from August 17-19, 2022.


The University of Hawaiʻi Community Design Center (UHCDC) is an outreach initiative led by the School of Architecture that builds on four decades of public service to Hawai’i and the Asia-Pacific region. Typical projects help state agencies, the University of Hawaii System, and local non-profit and community organizations explore proof-of-concept design alternatives for problems of diverse type, scope, and scale. The Institute for Sustainability and Resilience provides a campus-wide focus for sustainability and resilience curriculum, research, and outreach programs.
