STIR (See. Think. Inspire. Reflect has been conceived and founded in India as an international platform for light—for creativity in light, information on light, revelation through light and education about light and hence presented the exhibit, titled Block. Buster.
Block. Buster is an exhibition that showcases the works of acclaimed German architecture firm J. Mayer H. and Partners. With a special focus on the intersection of architecture, communication and new technology, and as activators of public space, their work re-evaluates the urban environment.
