Sustainability Lecture: Eiji Nakatsu

Interdisciplinary Studies and the Science and Sustainable Deign class present visiting designer Eiji Nakatsu.

 

Instrumental in redesigning the famous Shinkansen high-speed train (also known as the Bullet Train), Mr. Nakatsu is the former Director of Technical Development of JR-West. JR-West is part of Japan Railways, which operates a large portion of intercity rail service throughout the country of Japan. Mr. Nakatsu used the design approach of biomimicry (design innovation inspired by Nature) to radically improve the train’s performance, and will be speaking about his experience designing the Bullet Train to the Otis community, relating the inside story of what is probably the most famous case study in biomimicry.
