How can a kitchen table transform a campus?

The concept for the Kitchen Table comes from the local tradition of gathering informally around food to eat and talk story, often times at kitchen tables or long tables at pāʻinas or parties. This project realizes this function at a larger campus scale. The table will be made from precast concrete, utilizing leftover mix that would otherwise go to waste, and shaded by a series of PV powered umbrella charging station. This multi-use table will bring UH Mānoa’s students, faculty, and visiting community together.
