Learning from Hollywood 3: Kubrick, De Palma, Carpenter, Mann

Between the art of reality – architecture – and the representation of reality – cinema – there are reciprocal attractions  that testify to a shared yet different relation between space and imagination. The architects-directors are those capable of producing images with their eyes closed, creating original ideas and original compositional figures. Their corpus of films is clustered with architectural elements essential to the structure of each film, which in its turn acquires the features of an architectural composition.
Symmetry, an orthogonal grid, circularity, double, simple or increasingly complex geometric forms: the films of Kubrick, De Palma, Carpenter and Mann lend themselves well to architectural analysis.
