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 self-assuredness 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. 

Tssui will also present his preliminary designs for a 30,000-square acre seaside city in southern China, as well as the conceptual design for this century's tallest building at 1888 meters high, nearly three times taller than the existing Burj Kalifa building in Dubai, to be built in Shenzhen Bay in the Chinese city of Shenzhen next to Hong Kong. Light food and beverages will be provided.
