DESCRIPTION

The University of Hawai‘i – West O‘ahu is a public university in Kapolei, Hawaii. It is one of ten campuses of the University of Hawai‘i system. It offers baccalaureate degrees in liberal arts and professional studies. The campus includes six buildings, all within the main campus. The Nāulu Center Outdoor Learning Space, also referred to as the Cultural and Performing Arts and Education Amphitheater, is a flexible multipurpose performance and event area.

 

Construction of the Outdoor Learning Space was funded by the Title III Po‘o ‘Ike Kino & ‘Ohana (PIKO) Project. It features a metal shade structure (approximately 1,872 square feet) that incorporates supporting infrastructure — including power, telecommunications, WiFi, audiovisual capabilities for sound, theatrical lighting, and a large blow-up projector — to dually serve shading and performance needs. Areas within the shade structure and surrounding plaza now have furniture for seating and collaborative gathering. The existing planters are also modified to incorporate bench seating and convenience power outlets, and enhanced with new lei-friendly plantings.
