Mookuauhau Ko Hale Kui Maoli Genealogy of a Living Manifestation of Hawaiian Architecture
|Title:||Mookuauhau Ko Hale Kui Maoli Genealogy of a Living Manifestation of Hawaiian Architecture|
|Issue Date:||Dec 2012|
|Abstract:||Hawaiian architecture is a living manifestation of the ancestors. The interpretation of|
the stories is embodied in the design and structure. The traditions of the Hawaiian universe
guide the transcendence of architecture. Poetical hints embedded in chants and songs
formalize the metaphorical connection between man and deity as well as man and nature. The
built environment is the platform for the transference of knowledge, power, and dialogue from
Today, modernism and stereotyping of traditional Hawaiian architecture treat it as an
object of the past. The origins of tradition become diluted. However, through the keepers of
the Hawaiian national dance called, hula, traditions and stories of the Hawaiian universe are
kept, thus a movement to perpetuate the Hawaiian culture and reconnect us to our ancestors.
