History of Comparative Architecture: Architecture, Film and Spatial Imaginary

Daniel Sherer

Back to "Fall 2018" courses

The course focuses on the intersection of architecture and film and its role in establishing the formal, hermeneutic, and semiotic parameters of both. Convergences and divergences between the two arts will allow us to re-examine the visual implications and signifying functions of the modern and contemporary intermedium practice that arose when architecture was represented cinematically. Our guiding premise is that this practice implies a whole new set of perceptions that extend from a novel vision of architectural form to codes, both narrative and spatial, for reading the city as utopian and dystopian space.
