Rainbow Bazaar

-A A +A
1972, Leach, Cleveland and Associates and Bauer, Mori and Lum

An architectural potpourri housing thirty-three shops, the bazaar includes an authentic Buddhist temple relocated from a rural Thailand village, as well as a four-hundred-year-old Japanese farmhouse which serves as the interior of the Benihana restaurant. Other structures evoke the building traditions of China, Japan, Polynesia, and New England, including a muscular torii and a three-story pagoda.
