Our Stories of the History of Landscape Architecture in Hawai’i – Chapter II are featured articles published in the Landscape Industry Council of Hawai’i, Landscape Hawai’i Magazine.
Within these pages of historical facts are articles about influential landscape architects that helped form our landscape environment. Rich history of treasured open spaces, parks, magnificent trees, museums, sculptures, food, invasive species, and pandemics were written in these articles. This creative venue explores the people and places that helped to shape our landscape environment with our ASLA Hawai’i family and the community. These published bi-monthly articles have brought together our ASLA family for open communication, encouraging the sharing of untold stories and inspiring interesting dialog about the past as how it affects our future. The articles document how many of our landscape spaces came to be, in the hopes of preserving and protecting them for future generations. Ultimately, it is important to record and make accessible our history and share this knowledge for our keiki and future generations. Aloha ‘aina (Love for the land) to keep Hawai’i Green.
