PBR HAWAII continued its long-term involvement with Ala Moana Center by the playing a key role of landscape architect for the recent expansion where the previous Sears store was located. Since 2000, PBR HAWAII has been part of the Ala Moana Center design team which transformed the Center into a modern shopping and dining destination surrounded by lush native Hawaiian gardens and ponds. Ala Moana Center is the world’s largest open-air shopping center. As part of the design team, PBR HAWAII worked to create a native Hawaiian garden experience within the Center.
The central mall concourses contain extensive native Hawaiian plants with interpretive signs so that visitors have an opportunity to become aware of native Hawaiian plants and culture. The changes have helped to make Ala Moana Center more than a shopping mall; it has become a visitor destination in its own right.
