Pumpkin with a spooky face carved into it

The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa School of Architecture courtyard was transformed with giant cotton spiderwebs, orange fluorescent string lights and thumping Halloween music on October 19, as members of the American Institute of Architecture Students invited the public to its annual Pumpkin Esquisse, “Creatures of the Depths.”

UH Mānoa students used their architecturally adept talents to take a stab at intricate jack-o-lantern carving, as “kids” young and older milled around in costumes—the latter taking a break from college mid-terms.
