The conservatory roof of the Reyes House is made up of a pair of fibreglass panels modelled on the wings of a dragonfly. The wings may be hinged
open on fine days.

This was the first built example of Eugene Tsui's 'evolutionary architecture'. He defines this as 'an architecture that implements the evolutionary practices of nature as a synthesis of billions of
years of evolution applied to the immediate needs and circumstances of form, function and purpose'.
