CHAPTER REPORT: Docomomo US/Hawaii
 
The Neal Blaisdell Center opened in 1964 as the Honolulu International Center, a world-class arts and entertainment campus. At its opening ceremonies, the Center was dedicated as a war memorial to Hawaii’s service members, with the expressed hope that the Center “will give every opportunity for growth of the minds and hearts of the people of Hawaii.”

By Richard Longstreth, Frampton Tolbert, and Liz Waytkus

Summer is the perfect time to pack a suitcase or two, jump in the car, and go on a road trip. Inspired by Richard Longstreth's recent book Road Trip: Roadside America, From Custard's Last Stand to the Wigwam Restaurant - a photo expose that captures ephemeral road side architecture across the United States in the 1970s - Frampton Tolbert, a preservationist and founder of Mid-Century Mundane, and Liz Waytkus, Executive Director of Docomomo US, embarked upon road trips of their own to see if some of these sites still exist and discovered new ones along the way.
