The city in film

How is the urban landscape represented in film?
Which significance does it get thereby?
Why should architects be interested in it?

This seminar explores the relationship between film, architecture and the urban landscape. It tries to fathom how our perception and evaluation of built environments are shaped through film. It furthermore concentrates on the interdependencies that arise between the cinematic depiction of space, the construction of narratives and the production of architecture and the city.
