FILM AND ARCHITECTURE
The module will focus on the study of the interdisciplinary dialogue between film and architecture. Starting from the early days of cinema we will consider the two disciplines’ engagement with a range of styles and movements – Art Nouveau and Art Deco, Modernism, Postmodernism – at the same time introducing the main theoretical debates both architects and filmmakers have been concerned with. We will explore how space is imbricated with constructed social and cultural meanings in relation to gender, class and race. The module will then address specific technical aspects in the cinematic representation of the built environment, in particular the use of sound, lighting, framing, editing, point of view and narrative. In turn, we will consider the use of film as a specific device to innovate architectural practice. We will explore how specific typologies of spaces are represented on film and, at the same time, focus on the spaces of exhibition– the movie theatre, but also the museum and the built environment as a site for film and media projection, with particular attention to the element of sound and acoustics in film and architecture.
