4. Blur Building (Yverdon-les-Bainz, Switzerland)
Architects: Diller Scofidio + Renfro
Dates: 2002 Seven years passed from expo 2002 but this building is still one of my favorites. It’s probably the mist that makes it so unusual and amazing at the same time. So called ‘blur pavilion’ with self generated mist was meant to give an impression that the building is floating above the water without any structural support. And indeed it looks just like that.
