I’m writing this as the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has their annual awards gala downstairs somewhere.
I’ve always been a big movie fan but it’s been a big, busy year of transitions for me and I just haven’t seen many of the nominated films. I comment, mostly on Twitter, but also in my previous blog, that there are too few movies with architectural themes. Architecture Holds a Thousand Stories but they don’t make it to the big screen.
Architecture and filming are both highly visual productions however and occasionally a film uses a noteworthy architectural setting as a backdrop for the action.
- Which of these are your favorite?
- What other architectural landmarks would look good on film?
- What “Architectural Stories” would you like to see in film?
