Is the albizia tree a destructive force disrupting native ecosystems and communities in Hawai’i, or the material that can awaken new paradigms through thoughtful design? Paradigm Now dives into the journey undertaken by Joseph Valenti, architect and founder of The Albizia Project. In pioneering the housing prototype named Lika, Valenti has opened the door to sourcing timber locally, restoring ecosystems, and designing for future island resilience.
