In the last three decades, significant changes have taken place in the world of design, including the context, material and technology. The "Past forward" Competition calls for an introspection of these development theoretically and formally by re-design the "BLUR BUILDING " by Diller Scofidio + Renfro. We re-define the blur as the conflict between physical reorganization and digital existence. The physical disturbance is achieved by refractions while the digital connection is achieved by Web 2.0 based iphone application.
It is an initiative to help people nowadays to identify their physical presents from their digital lives.
It is a device with which people could discover the occupancy of the cybernetic part in their mind.
It is also an incubator that bring up the opportunities of encountering.
It is a labyrinth built up with hundreds of the “water stalactites”.
It is a container within which there are unobvious boundary between illusion and reality.
It is also an experiment field where the refraction of lights is manipulated following the design of the continuous transparent surface.
