The Blur Building (Yverdon-les-Bains/ Switzerland)

The Blur Building was constructed in 2002 for a Swiss Expo. The primary construction material is water, pumped up from the lake below and emitted into the air by over 30,000 high pressure nozzles. Once inside, the low hum of the nozzles emitting the water vapor into the air blocks out all sound from the outside and visitors are left with a sense of nothingness.
