UH architecture school names scholarship after former professor



The University of Hawaii at Manoa’s architecture school has created a new scholarship in honor of former Associate Professor Leighton Liu, who retired last year after 40 years at the school.

The Leighton Liu Endowed Scholarship is due to support an outstanding second year architecture student who demonstrates design excellence.

The scholarship was established with $35,000 in donations from friends and alumni.

Liu started at the school as an instructor in 1971. Most recently, he served as supervisor of a workshop uniting traditional hand and digital construction techniques.

The University of Hawaii Foundation announced the scholarship in a news release Monday.
