Island of Molokai

Island of Molokai

Molokai Area: 673.4 km² Population: 7,404 (2000) Highest elevation: 4,961 ft (1,512.1 m) Largest settlement: Kaunakakai History Molokai is a Hawaiian island in the central Pacific. Molokai was long inhabited by self-sufficient taro growers and fishermen. In the 18th century the kingdom of Oahu gained control over Molokai; its rule lasted until 1785, when warriors from Maui and Hawaii islands invaded and separately ruled the island. Hawaiian chief Kamehameha I invaded in 1795 and subordinated the population as part of his effort to unify the Hawaiian Islands. Christian missionaries arrived on Molokai in the 1830s. A large ranch was established by Kamehameha V, but this destroyed much of the island’s plant life and fishing ponds. By the 1860s a colony had been begun for victims of leprosy (Hansen disease), and this led to the forced resettlement of many of the island’s natives, particularly from the Kalaupapa Peninsula, in the 1860s and 1890s. The Hawaiian Homes Commission Act of 1921 encouraged homesteading and resettlement on Molokai. Lack of water slowed development, but after 1923, with the growth of the pineapple industry, small villages grew up on the plateau. The economy of the island suffered a setback in the 1970s and 1980s…

National Memorial Cemetary of the Pacific –
Punchbowl Cemetery

Punchbowl Cemetery

Punchbowl Cemetery - National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific Few national cemeteries can compete with the dramatic natural setting of the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. Commonly knows as Punchbowl Cemetery or Punchbowl Memorial, the bowl was formed some 75,000 to 100,000 years ago during the Honolulu period of secondary volcanic activity. A crater resulted from the ejection of hot lava through cracks in the old coral reefs which, at the time, extended to the foot of the Koolau Mountain Range. Punchbowl Cemetary Virtual Tour on Memorial Day Dave took his panoramic pole when visited Punchbowl on Memorial Day with our 4 Year Old.  These pictures were taken after the official memorial day ceremonies had ended. Punchbowl Memorial History During the late 1890s, a committee recommended that the Punchbowl become the site for a new cemetery to accommodate the growing population of Honolulu. The idea was rejected for fear of polluting the water supply and the emotional aversion to creating a city of the dead above a city of the living Fifty years later, Congress authorized a small appropriation to establish a national cemetery in Honolulu with two provisions: that the location be acceptable to the War Department, and…

Hawaiian Railway Society: Parlor Car 64

Hawaiian Railway Society: Parlor Car 64 In 1900, Oahu Railway & Land Co. founder, Benjamin F. Dillingham, had Parlor/Observation Car No. 64 designed and built especially for himself. No. 64 was the showpiece of the OR&L's rolling stock. Built in Honolulu at a cost of $4,388.24, it had a double-size rear platform surrounded by ornate iron grill work and protected from the sun by fluted awnings. Oak, mahogany and birds eye maple created an interior of luxury. The parlor car was fitted with a galley, lavatory, washstand and sideboard. It was used frequently by the OR&L for visiting dignitaries. The most notable guests were members of the Hawaiian royal family. The observation platform offered guests a chance to feel the cool trade winds, as well as giving them a better view of the landscape. No. 64 has been restored and is available for charter.

Frank Lloyd Wright Home in Hawaii

PanaViz was invited to photograph the only Frank Lloyd Wright home built in Hawaii. These pictures show why his design is timeless and still relevant. Completed in 1995 the home was commissioned by Sanderson Sims who partnered with Taliesin Associated Architects, John Rattenbury and the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation to bring the un-built plan to life. History of Home: Originally conceived for the Cornwell Family in Pennsylvania in 1954, the 3,700 sq. foot passive solar hemicycle home embodies Frank Lloyd Wright’s principles of organic architecture in which the structure blends harmoniously with the natural landscape. The plans were prepared by Taliesin Associated Architects in Scottsdale, Arizona who are affiliated with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and the only entity authorized to oversee the construction of Frank Lloyd Wright’s unbuilt projects. The project was built by Hans Torweihe and the interior design was completed by Gina Willman A series of opaque skylights bring natural light into the home and warm lighting behind opaque glass illuminates the house at night. This 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom architecturally significant residence can accommodate a family of 6 in a setting that is truly one-of-a-kind. Features of the home include an outdoor lava-rock hot tub overlooking…

Dallas’ new T. Boone Pickens Hospice

Dallas’ new T. Boone Pickens Hospice

PanaViz had the opportunity to photograph this end of life palliative care facility in Dallas, Texas. The $43 million-dollar community, Dallas’ first free-standing inpatient hospice care center opened in February, after being in the works for nearly a decade. The T. Boone Pickens Hospice and Palliative Care Center sits on 9.5 acres of land on Merit Drive in North Dallas. Its peaceful surroundings and modern design of soft lighting, floral displays and accent pillows -- aims to create home-like atmosphere for those facing the end of life. It's a hospitality approach that moves away from the typical clinical setting.   The facility includes a total of 36 spacious rooms that have en suite bathrooms, fold-out beds for guests and an office space for caregivers. A patio in each room faces out toward a 2.5-acre on-site lake, where winding pathways and lounge spaces ensure visitors won't be confined to a room. There is space designed for every member of the family," explained Jannetta Lingle, director of clinical services. It was intentionally designed to look “homey and inviting,” he said. “Most people would prefer to be at home at the end of life.” The goal of hospice is to help people who…

Architectural Photography

We photographed this luxury resort home, located in the Hualalai Resort on the North Kona Coast of the Island of Hawaii. Photographing the sumptuous bathroom of this home was challenging. It has must see elements, from the outdoor plunge pool and lounging area, to the deep, deep indoor tub, in all quadrants of the space. The only way to capture it all was to create a 360 degree virtual tour of the area. This lets you see how the space is laid out, how the different elements complement each other, and gives you a sense of the true scale of the bathroom. Click on scene 4 of the virtual tour on the right to see the bathroom in its entirety. Click Thumbnail To View 360 Panorama
