Dr. Eugene Tsui: Nature is the supreme architect

A beautiful video out of Netscape/Propeller by Alexia Pritchard:

The Mexican poet Homero Aridjis said that “without nature there is no poetry,” and that couldn’t be more true for the subject of our next profile.

In this final installment of the “Shelter” segment of the Sustainability Series, we meet Dr. Eugene Tsui, a non-traditional architect whose design inspiration comes from nature and all the brilliant systems and methods found therein. Dr. Tsui shows us city designs inspired by termites, and gives us a tour of his parents’ house, a futuristic-looking structure that has some calling it “The Fish House.”
