The first prototype is in final stages of R&D. We've had successful results in structural testing and are currently fabricating the full-scale structure.
ARCH490 DIGITAL BUILD Summer class (2017)
Temporary installation of first completed components on-site at UHM School of Architecture.
Locally Sourced Lumber
We've collected unwanted albizia logs from O‘ahu removal projects, including UH Manoa Lyon Arboretum, U.S. Army Schofield Barracks, and H-2 Mililani.
Multi-sector and cross-campus collaboration has opened the door to a synergistic flow of local resources and project engagement.
Testing of structural members have shown that this system allows for construction with engineered albizia timber.
UH MāNoa Site
We're working with University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa to exhibit the prototype on campus for students and the public to experience.
