PARADIGM NOW | The Albizia Project

Is the Albizia tree a destructive force, disrupting native ecosystems and causing economic damage, or the material that can awaken new paradigms through thoughtful design? PARADIGM NOW dives into the journey undertaken by architect Joey Valenti in pioneering Lika, a prototype that opens the door to sourcing timber locally, restoring native ecosystems, and designing for future island resilience.
