Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With the birth of film came the birth of a revolutionary visual language. This new, unique vocabularyand#8212;the cut, the fade, the dissolve, the pan, and a new idea of movement gave not only artists but also architects a completely new way to think about and describe the visual. The Architecture of the Screen examines the interrelations between the visual language of film and the onscreen perception of space and architectural design, revealing how filmand#8217;s visual vocabulary influenced architecture in the twentieth century and continues to influence it today. Graham Cairns draws on film reviews, architectural plans, and theoretical texts to illustrate the unusual and fascinating relationship between the worlds of filmmaking and architecture.

About the Author

Graham Cairns is a visiting scholar in architecture and design at both Florida State University and Ravensbourne, UK.
