Vladimir Ossipoff

Vladimir Ossipoff “An architect has to be a bit of a sociologist, lawyer and psychologist. He has to know human nature.” (Ossipoff) Vladimir Ossipoff was a prominent architect in the Islands, working between the 1930s and 1990s. He is best known for his contribution to the development of the Hawaiian Modern movement. This style is characterized by the work of architects who “subscribed to the general modernity of the International Style while attempting to integrate the cultural and topographical character of the (Hawaiian) region.” Ossipoff was born in Russia on November 25, 1907; he died October 1, 1998 in Honolulu.
