THE PAST

Constructed for the Bank of Hawaii in 1966 by George Wimberly, the building's architectural design is a fusion of Polynesia and post-modernism. The result of these combined influences is a glass office tower in the international style with a lattice structure or exosleleton reminiscent of Hawaiian or tropical aesthetic motifs.   Mr. Wimberly's informed designed with exterior, inset windows, protects from direct sunlight and provides a cat walk for easy cleaning.  Mr. Wimberly also designed other striking and enduring edifices in Hawaii:  

  • Valley of the Temples Chapel in 'Ähuimanu on the Windward Side
  • Foodland supermarket at Windward Shopping Center (1953) in Käne'ohe
  • Bank of Hawai'i building, 15-stories (1966)
  • Sheraton Waikïkï
  • Sheraton Maui "clinging to the side of a prominent rock outcropping at Kaanapali Beach" (1963)
  • Kona Hilton, a "primitivist, bony, whitewashed" building  "built on a rocky point at Kailua Bay on the Big Island" (1968)
