Sinclair Library

Mānoa, O‘ahu, Hawai‘i

The Metcalf Entrance and Sinclair Library are slated to become a major placemaking feature that anchors the western edge of the upper Mānoa campus. The area will feature increased student housing and a new hub, the anticipated Sinclair Student Success Center.

The Success Center will offer amenities for students to study, receive counseling, and grab food and refreshments.

The site will become a major gateway, an intersection between the realms of urban and educational spaces and paces of student life and academics.

Inspired by two prominent female Native Hawaiian scholars, the site design hopes to honor the legacy of Isabella Aiona Abbott (award winning scientist),  and Emma Ka‘ili Metcalf Nakuina (first water rights comissioner and female judge in the Kingdom of Hawaii.)
