Designing Paradise

In "Designing Paradise: The Allure of the Hawaiian Resort", author Don Hubbard brings us the complete story of the Hawaiian resort, from its origins as humble thatched taverns housing transient whalers to the elaborately cultivated luxury resort hotels of today. Hibbard examines the motivations that shaped their development, including the critical role that advances in airplane technology, statehood, and two hundred years of advertising and travel writing have played in the evolution of their design.
