hade is often one of the most important
design considerations for public venues
in Hawaii, especially on the leeward (away
from the wind) side of an island. Such is the
case on Oahu, where the Ka Makana Ali'i shopping
center is located.
A center court at the recently built Ka Makana
retail center needed heat and solar mitigation
against the occasionally sweltering heat buildup.
Local fabricator Tropical J's Inc. proposed a system
of tensioned cables across the courtyard with 68
fabric mesh panels of varying sizes to block the
strong Pacific sun's rays.
Printed with graphics incorporating traditional
Hawaiian motifs, the PVC-coated polyester mesh
panels are suspended on horizontally tensioned
steel cables that can easily be retracted or extended
as needed. The cables also are designed to be
released after all the panels are retracted in case of
severe winds of 105 mph or greater or hurricanes.
The cables are attached to the shopping center's
existing structural frame beams with an added
freestanding post-and-beam support in the center
of the courtyard. This approach extends coverage
where most customers gather while keeping sight
lines clear for storefront signage.
This project won an Award of Excellence
in IFAI's 2018 International Achievement
Awards competition. -B.W.
