“Urban Matters," an exhibition of UH Mānoa School of Architecture student urban projects, will open at 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 19, at the Irene and Haigo Shen Architecture Gallery at the School of Architecture building.

The exhibition assembles student projects at the School over recent years, showcasing critical research and design investigations of cities, and projections of possible futures for our increasingly urbanized planet. The collection of work celebrates a plurality of approaches taken by the professors and their students in imagining alternative urbanisms set within the contexts of four cities: Honolulu, Shanghai, Dhaka and Tokyo.

The exhibition is organized by the Urbanism Research Lab (URL) and curated by co-directors Kazi Ashraf and David Rockwood.  It is made possible with the generous support of the School of Architecture, and its students, student assistants, faculty and staff.
