The Polynesian Cultural Center strives to provide visitors with the experience of traveling to various islands of Polynesia, sharing in the culture and a bit of the lifestyle at each location. Recreation of village themed settings for each island aids in enhancing the experience, as a supportive backdrop to the dancers and performers interacting with the visitors. Belt Collins is grateful to have contributed to the Cultural Center visitor experience by providing engineering and landscape design services for village settings, Ali‘i Lū‘au Garden and other facilities.

Starting in the late 1990s, Belt Collins provided landscape architectural consultation to the Cultural Center for renovation of the Tongan Marketplace, Fijian Village, Tahitian Village, Shop Polynesia, Hale Kuai meeting/dining venue, and design of the Tahitian Village Amphitheater. In the ensuing decade, the firm’s civil engineering and landscape architectural designers collaborated for the Tahiti Snack Bar, Hawaiian Village Expansion and renovation of the 650-seat Hale Aloha Ali‘i Lū‘au Garden. The garden was initially built on a level site, which was enhanced by grading and sculpting rolling hills and mounds to provide drainage, create a lagoon, and incorporate waterfalls along with luxuriant plantings and lush vegetation. The most recent work at the Cultural Center was providing landscape and irrigation system design for the 2,700-guest Theater Pavilion stage where the dynamic evening show HĀ: Breath of Life is presented against a dramatic three-story backdrop of waterfalls and native plants.
