Participants in the UN Climate Change Conference this week in New York are looking to the roots of the problem for systemic change.  Some previously unquestioned facets of life might need to be re-examined, like the way we categorize land and build our cities.  HPR’s Noe Tanigawa reports on the idea of Hawaiian urbanism.

“Land Division”, an installation by Sean Connelly continues on view at the Honolulu Museum of Art through November 9th.  

Sean Connelly’s website, Hawaii Futures, outlines a futures framework for development intended to restore watersheds, making wai (water) the central organizing element of urbanization in Hawaii.
