Dietrich Neumann con Film Architecture: From Metropolis to Blade Runner
Throughout the 20th century, the vision of cities and spaces shown in films are often more memorable than any created on a drafting board or construction site. However, despite its significant role in the history of both architecture and film, screen architecture still remains largely undiscovered. Film Architecture: Set Designs from Metropolis to Blade Runner examines these architectural elements, and includes a look at the original set designs used by filmmakers across Europe and the United States.
This book is fully illustrated with many memorable backdrops to famous movies. It combines original set designs with publicity stills and prints from actual footage. It elucidates the role of both the set designer and the architect in the creation of a movie, documents the process from the initial sketch to the final product, and highlights the diverse and complex relationship between two leading artforms of our century, film and architecture.
