According to researchers around the world, the behavior of humanity is destroying the planet, and our time is running out. Is it possible to change our attitudes, behaviors and values to re-invent and restore the planet?  How can this be done and what does this change look like? 
International architect, author and professor, Eugene Tssui, presents his work in four quick segments; 1) The Ecological State of our Planet  2) The Design Principles of Nature 3) Our Behavioral Change  4) The New Language of Architecture to Restore the Future.
Join us for an eye-opening view of reality and a reach for our surprising future!  How can we re-design ourselves and our built environment to meet the challenges of our times?
