Little Innovative Kit of Albizia

In 2018, we prototyped a 400 sq ft housing unit to demonstrate the potential of a material that people once thought had no use. LIKA is a prefab albizia timber structure that utilizes passive design strategies to fit in Hawaii’s tropical island environment. The form was inspired by indigenous Pacific Island architecture.

Why Albizia

Albizia trees are a perfect example of the damage an invasive species can cause
— Trae Menard - Director of Forest Conservation, The Conservancy's Hawai‘i

Hawaii grown albizia is the fastest growing tree species in the world and has been spreading across the Hawaiian Islands for over a century. It has caused a vast amount of damage to houses, roads, public infrastructure, and is a major threat to native ecosystems. 

Let’s turn the problem into a solution.
