Film Screening/Presentation: "TELOS: The Fantastic World of Eugene Tssui"
Add to my Calendar Get DirectionsPrint This Event
Join us for this one-of-a-kind conversation with maverick architect Eugene Tssui and filmmaker, Kyung Lee, in what will truly be a lively presentation of "Telos: The Fantastic World of Eugene Tssui". The film presents the vision of Tssui, inspired by nature's form and function and whose ideas, always focused on sustainability, have been ahead of their time for over 30 years. Tssui is a man who, in his own words, is trying to do no less than to "change the world." "Telos" constructs a complex portrait of a fascinating character fueled by unswerving selfassuredness and unyielding creativity. The opening montage introduces his aesthetic, featuring architectural models with vibrant colors and unusual shapes that conjure images of enormous plants, birds or insects. Undaunted by the slow pace of acceptance for his radical ideas Tssui sports a serious expression…and a high-collared, purple sequined suit. What first appears to be a questionable fashion choice is later explained as the prototype for a wearable, solar energy capture system. His non-conformist attire is another avenue for Tssui to explore his pedagogical principles: conscious design for social evolution with creativity as an integral factor. There is more to this man than first meets the eye. Purchase tickets early -- limited space; light food and drink will be served.
