When the visionary American architectural team of Diller + Scofidio won a commission for Swiss EXPO 2002, they re-invented the tradition of designing spectacular buildings for World's Fairs by creating an empty one -- an ephemerally beautiful yet eerily vacant pavilion. Consisting of a mist formed by 30,000 fog nozzles mounted on an immense structure of steel cables, the Blur Building appears to float above a Swiss lake. It's a fabricated cloud, complete with a water bar.
The book of Blur captures the experience of passing through this vaporous maze. Nearly 400 pages, including two double gatefolds, document every aspect of the project, from the first conceptual sketches to the computer-programmed "braincoats" to be worn by the estimated 10 million visitors to construction documents and news clippings. Even the shadowy title typography conveys the transitory essence of Diller + Scofidio's thought-provoking work. This unique book will be the permanent manifestation of the building, which will be dismantled after the Expo closes.Reseña del editor:
Blur captures the experience of passing through the pavilion created for the Swiss EXPO 2002 by visionary architects Diller and Scofidio. It also documents every aspect of the project, from the first conceptual sketches to construction documents and news clippings.
