Class ARCH 506
Class Title Architecture in Film
Description Architecture in Film introduces narrative film as a means of analyzing, designing and representing architecture and the physical environment. Each week an entire film is screened from an international filmography that includes classic and contemporary works by directors such as Alfred Hitchcock, F.W. Murnau, Jean Renoir, Todd Haynes and Charles Burnett. Following their screenings the films are discussed for their architectural content based on analytical exercises given at the start of class meetings. For midterm and final assignments they are interpreted for use in making two five-minute videos of students’ architectural or planning projects or of buildings or places that students select through discussion with the instructor. To prepare the videos, students are required to attend the course's video-making workshop and to write a treatment (or narrative summary) for each video consisting of 750 words of original text.
