AbstractThough Hong Kong has considerable green spaces, the enclosed, nice urban landscape is usually too symbolic for deep rest while the joyful natural park lacks setting for people to have long stay and deep enjoyment. I would like to take the opportunity of the thesis to research and discuss of a place where the landscape could be blurred with human intervention providing space for people to sustainable stay, enjoy nature and relax from the high density, high speed, and high-pressured urban life. Meanwhile, the local setting will be blurred in to the landscape as a feature that enhance the interaction between human and nature as well. It will be a space for people frequently and easier to be back to nature, a place for people to calm, clear, and pure their minds and heart, and a location to build a sustainable and harmonious relationship between people and nature. A meditation field is defined as such a place in my design. Blurring landscape is a new approach in this design where the blurring landscape layer turns the original site constrains into opportunity and sustainable human stay, and on the other hand, it enhances the interactive landscape feature for deep relax and completion through five senses.
