Arch 443/646: Architecture and Film
Fall 2005

special topic:

contemplations _ of _ zero _ gravity


film gives us the rare opportunity to completely question all that has come to be accepted in terms of the language of architecture and architectural and historic convention

much of the development of this convention is based upon the existence of gravity

gravity has driven the design of structures and architectural systems since the notion of shelter was first conceived

the focus of the term will be the exploration of expressions of zero gravity architecture in films over the past 100 years

the final student film productions will also be asked to both question and address the issue of gravity in their expression

how do we build buildings? how do we build movies?
