ARCH 506 – Urbanism in Film

Description

This course uses narrative film as the basis for analyzing architecture and urbanism. Each week a film is screened from an international filmography that includes works by directors such as Alfred Hitchcock, F.W. Murnau, Charles Dassin, Fritz Lang, Gillo Pontecorvo, Wim Wenders and Wayne Wang. Following their screenings the films are discussed based on analytical exercises given at the start if class meetings. As midterm and final assignments they are also interpreted for use in making videos of students' architectural or planning projects or of buildings or cities that students select through discussion with the instructor.
