Kaka'ako Agora by Japanese Renowned Architects Atelier Bow-Wow
The first indoor park of its kind in Honolulu opens in Our Kaka'ako. Brought to you by Kamehameha Schools and Interisland Terminal, Kaka'ako Agora transforms a 3,225 square-foot warehouse into a publicly accessible, free, shaded community gathering place. The build out includes a mezzanine-level that adds 687 square-feet to the formerly vacant space.
Designed by Tokyo-based architect Atelier Bow-Wow, Kaka'ako Agora is devoted to arts and culture events that continue to push creativity and innovation within the community. The vision for the space will be executed through local partnerships and is the first multi-purpose, free public space in urban Honolulu.
The architect, creators of innovative spaces in Mumbai, Montreal, Berlin and New York, have partnered with local companies such as Collab Studios, Sunworks Construction, Heavy Metal Hawaii, and Hui Ku Maoli Ola to fabricate the indoor park.
To celebrate the opening of Kaka'ako Agora, a series of free programming is being offered for the month of June. To view the June Kaboom calendar of events or for more information on how to use the space, visit www.kakaakoagora.org.
Kaka'ako Agora is located at 441 Cooke Street (between Auahi and Pohukaina).
Hours of operation are: Monday – Friday from 9:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
