The architectural design and steel frame construction of the historic Alexander & Baldwin Building was the subject of a talk and video presentation at a monthly meeting of the Engineers and Architects of Hawai‘i earlier this year. Giving the presentation was Don Hibbard of Mason Architects, co-author of a book about one of the building’s designers entitled Hart Wood, Architectural Regionalism in Hawai‘i.
Wood and another notable Hawai‘i architect, C.W. Dickey, collaborated on the design of the A & B Building, which was completed in 1929.
