PUMICE RAFT #1: THE INTERSECTIONS OF CINEMA AND ARCHITECTURE

Event Information:
Film makers and architects explore the fundamental connections shared by the two art forms. How does cinema exhibit characteristics of architecture both through the structure of the medium as well as its narratives? How do architects construct spaces that embody narrative possibilities and guides their inhabitants?

With the birth of cinema in the late 19th century we were able to, for the first time, see a representation of our constructed reality, and built architecture, in full motion. Depictions of space and perspective in early cinema charged towards viewers with a startling realism in films such as L'Arrivée d'un train en gare de La Ciotat (The Arrival of the Mail Train). Over the course of the last hundred years, Cinema has evolved into a mature artistic and commercial medium that has developed its own spatial grammar, which in a circular gesture has influenced the design of contemporary architecture. This panel discussion looks to explore this reciprocal relationship between Cinema and Architecture.
