Architects created stunning designs in Honolulu’s new Olympic Village during the International Architecture Biennale, according to the Architectural Photography Association of Hawaii.
The organization showcased some of the work they did during the biennial.
They created a new house in the Olympic Village that resembles a giant clock and a giant statue of the Hawaiian Goddess of Happiness, which were built by architects J. Michael Mcdonald and Michael McBride.
The project, called “Hawaii’s Olympic Statue,” is one of a number of projects that Mcdonald, McBride and McBride have been working on in the past year.
The projects are part of the $1 billion project that was originally announced by Mayor Kirk Caldwell, but McBride told Business Insider that they have been putting the finishing touches on since the biennale.
McBride, McDonald and McClinton built the project, dubbed “The World of Hawaii,” at their offices in Honolulu.
The project was a collaboration between McBride, a longtime Honolulu architect, and architect McBride Associates, who are also the architects behind “Tiger Woods: PGA Tour 17,” and “Tigers Woods: The PGA World Championship,” according to a press release from McBride’s office.
The architects’ work, which is a “reinvention of the classic American dream,” includes a large building that looks like a clock and an iconic statue of “Hawaiian Happiness” that looks “like a giant, huge statue of Hawaiian Happiness,” according the release.
The entire project will be built on the site of the old Honolulu Hotel, and will include a $10 million, 2,000-foot-tall structure that will be the centerpiece of the project.
Mcdonald and McBridens plans include a residential neighborhood called the “Olympic Village,” which is planned to be home to more than 500 homes, according the press release.
They also plan to open a cafe in the village, as well as create a community garden that will provide a place for visitors to enjoy food and beverages.
A series of public tours of the new village will begin in the fall, and the first visitors will be able to explore the new buildings in August.
