33rd AIAS Kailua Sandcastle Contest Pictures

The 33rd Annual AIAS Sandcastle contest took place on Kailua Beach last weekend (February 13, 2010) and we have some great shots of the action.

Every Year students from the University of Hawai’i School of Architecture and professional architects compete in designing and building sand sculptures at Kailua Beach Park. The contestants are given a theme and two hours to complete their structure. They are judged on creativity, use of space, detail, and building ability. This years theme was iconic architecture and the winner was the Great Wall pictured below.
