Designed in a collaboration between John Carl Warnecke and Belt, Lemmon And Lo, the building is an example of Hawaiian international architecture, an American adaptation of the Bauhaus style.  The Hawaii State Capitol is surrounded by a reflecting pool, symbolizing the Pacific Ocean, with the rotunda opening to the sky.  Both legislative chambers are cone-shaped, symbolizing the volcanoes which formed the Hawaiian Islands.

The capitol, completed in 1969, is part of the Hawaii Capital Historic District, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
