‘The Architecture Of Cinematic Spaces’ Tells The Story Of Iconic Film Sets

Mar 20, 2020

Category: Entertainment

The world of film is inundated with thought-provoking characters who serve to amplify our cinematic experience, whether it be through superb improvisation, painstaking mimicry, or aspirational charm. And although the stars of the silver screen are overtly important to a film’s critique, the spaces that these characters occupy are equally as memorable — something that the architecture and design blog, Interiors, has highlighted in its newest textual endeavor.

The Architecture Of Cinematic Spaces, a visually-enticing illustration of key film locations from some of history’s most lauded on-set dwellings, takes an interesting approach to help readers understand the importance of “setting.” Covering a series of unprecedented designs from films like The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, Rope, Le mépris, Playtime, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Home Alone, Panic Room, A Single Man, Her, and Columbus, the book takes an artistic, but educated look into the science behind set design, illuminating the stories that each space can tell through a series of critical essays and original floor plan drawings. If you’re a fan of film, design, or both, The Architecture Of Cinematic Spaces is available now for $27 via Interiors’ online store.
