Eugene Geinzer exhibited his whimsical furniture-sculpture in the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Lever House and Zabriskie Galleries of New York, and many university galleries. Gradually, while teaching packaging design, ceramic sculpture and woodworking at Georgetown University and Loyola University Chicago, he undertook larger and larger furniture commissions for universities and churches. What were once sculptures, he realized, were actually growing up to become architecture. Thus began his dual life as teacher of sculpture and a student of architecture. Here in Beijing he practiced woodworking by designing the bookcases for the Anton Library and as an architect by designing the future quarters of the TBC building on UIBE’s campus. An instinctual interest in Chinese Architecture spurred him to research of Domestic Dwellings and to invent a cross-disciplinary course in Traditional Chinese Architecture which he teaches now.
