Hawaiian Modern: the Architecture of Vladimir Ossipoff

The Honolulu Academy of the Arts will soon be featuring an exhibition about prolific Hawaii architect Vladimir Ossipoff (1907-1998). The exhibition will start in Honolulu on November 29, 2007 and will continue with various events through January 27, 2008. After Honolulu, the exhibition will travel on to New Haven, Connecticut and Frankfurt, Germany.

The guest curator for this important architectural event is Dean Sakamoto. An exhibition catalogue, really a book, “Hawaii Modern,” has been published by Yale University Press and the Honolulu Academy of Arts for the occasion. Contributors to the catalogue include notable architects and educators, such as Stephen Little, Dean Sakamoto, Karla Britton,  Kenneth Frampton, Marc Treib, Don Hibbard, Spencer Leineweber, Victoria Sambunaris, and Jenny Chang.

Among notable projects of Vladimir (Val) Ossipoff are commercial buildings such as the Honolulu International Airport. He is also well known for his residential projects and his adept incorporation of natural elements of weather, wind and landscape into open living space. Many of his homes amd commercial buildings remain standing on Oahu and other Hawaiian islands. In Honolulu, Ossipoff homes for sale command a premium and are coveted by their owners.
