Replacing the former Lolani Palace as the state house, the present Hawaii State Capitol was built in the 1960’s and was commissioned by John A. Burns- the second Governor of Hawaii.
The unique design of the building with its stately architecture gave way to a new style called the "Hawaiian international architecture". The pools surrounding the building represent the Pacific Ocean while the cone-shaped chambers symbolize the volcanoes that formed the Hawaiian Island.
