Two peas in a pod. One week ago today I made this girl my fiancée @teenytiny_tine 💍 . . . #team #albiziaproject #thealbiziaproject #peasinapod #architecture #innovation #design #hawaii #oahu #honolulu #engaged #fiance #love
Two years ago @waimanalowood reached out to help get the Albizia Project off the ground. We pushed thru some trying times, broke down barriers, and never let up. Amazing to watch our progress run parallel and stoked to see how we grow from here! . . . #thealbiziaproject #prototype #lika #installation #invasivespecies #sawmill #woodworking #woodwork #woodmizer #albizia #trees #wood #timber #architecture #innovation #design #designbuild #renewable #material #hawaii #oahu #honolulu #waimanalo #sustainability #uhsustainability #circulareconomy
Was lucky enough to work on this fun little structure @kakoooiwi last weekend. Nice project @rafter_studio can’t wait to see it finished! . . . #trees #wood #timber #shousugiban #architecture #innovation #design #designbuild #housing #community #hawaii #oahu
Come see the @moana_lani_festival stage transform into an installation of invasive mangrove and marine debris in the Barn @saltourkakaako this Friday-Sunday. Music, art, performances, fashion show, workshops, documentaries... And be sure to check out the @zerowaste_oahu Summit on Saturday for a panel discussion followed by talk story with yours truly & @mattylynch808 ! . . . #thealbiziaproject #invasivespecies #albizia #mangrove #trees #wood #timber #architecture #innovation #design #designbuild #housing #community #zerowaste #plasticfreejuly #plasticfree #plasticfreehawaii #circulareconomy #resilience #renewable #waste #material #hawaii #oahu #honolulu #sustainability #uhsustainability
Thank you @senruderman for the visit today! Looking forward to working with you and @rusthomwoz to implement new pathways to innovative housing solutions for lava flow evacuees in #puna 🙏🏼 . . . #thealbiziaproject #invasivespecies #albizia #trees #wood #timber #architecture #innovation #design #designbuild #housing #shelter #community #emergencyhousing  #resilience #renewable #material #hawaii #oahu #honolulu #sustainability #uhsustainability
The Puna community put in a lot of effort to get some albizia samples to take back to Oahu for structural testing // Unfortunately, @hawaiianairlines Hilo wouldn’t allow us to fly with the samples. Rescheduled our flight to stay in Hilo to sort this out tomorrow morning with the agriculture office - wish us luck. . . . #puna #pahoa #kilauea #volcano #punastrong #thealbiziaproject #community #sawmill #timber #wood #emergencyhousing
Dr. Weatherford is hosting us at his home in Pahoa just up the road from the active volcano. It’s hard to take in all that this community is going through but incredible to witness how far they will go to take care of one another. We’ve seen so much in a day and will begin searching for ways to help them rebuild. . . . #puna #pahoa #kilauea #volcano #punastrong #thealbiziaproject #community #humanity

I remember when (almost) everyone told me... “you can’t use this stuff for building, maybe chopsticks or pallets but not building”🥢🤔 . . . #fakenews #counterculture #thealbiziaproject #installation #invasivespecies #albizia #trees #wood #timber #architecture #innovation #design #designbuild #renewable #material #hawaii #oahu #honolulu #uhmanoa #schoolofarchitecture #sustainability #uhsustainability

Stepped away for a few days for some much needed rest and recharging. Back now in full force to finish up Lika and launch some exciting new projects! . . . #thealbiziaproject #installation #invasivespecies #albizia #trees #wood #timber #architecture #innovation #design #designbuild #renewable #material #hawaii #oahu #honolulu #uhmanoa #schoolofarchitecture #sustainability #uhsustainability
A clip from yesterday’s press conference with HFIA president & @martinandmacarthur CEO Michael Tam, DLNR/DOFAW State Resource & Survey Forester Philipp LaHaela Walter, and yours truly. We’ve just been awarded the US Forest Service Wood Innovations Grant for $250k!!! Starting July 2018 Hawaii’s first ever Wood Utilization Team will take shape and initiate three projects: 1) Forest Products Directory (HFIA); 2) Design/Build Housing Prototype II (Albizia Project); 3) Design/Planning Education Center for Kauai (Albizia Project/DLNR). Time to awaken the innovation machine and break barriers!
