Exhibit in Rotch Library – Lanai: Living in the Landscape

Lanai: Living in the Landscape, a photo book by graduate student Stephanie Hsu (M.Arch), will be on display in Rotch Library (Rm 7-238), from December 10, 2007 through January 13, 2008. Funded in part by the Council for the Arts at MIT.

Once the largest pineapple plantation in the world, the island of Lanai is now 98% privately owned, home to two Four Seasons resorts, and known as the most exclusive of the Hawaiian Islands. Revealing life on Lanai from the perspective of the local population, architecture graduate student Stephanie Hsu documents the island during its transition from a plantation to a world class vacation destination.
