Telos: The Fantastic World of Eugene Tssui

Just imagine: a roof that flutters like a butterfly’s wings or a house molded in the form of a microscopic animal. These are the works of architect Eugene Tssui.  At first glance these structures look like the product of an iconoclast—designs that attack architectural conventions purely for the sake of novelty and surprise.  However, Telos: The Fantastic World of Eugene Tssui portrays a much different character.  I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the film was more interested in exploring the complexities of the man as opposed to simply advocating for his eccentric design sensibilities.
