Beyond the Haze of Carnival Candles: Cinematic Space in Architectural Design Education
Andreas Kretzer (Technology University of Applied Sciences Stuttgart, Germany)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-7998-7254-2.ch002
This chapter addresses new approaches for design and production practices by applying film as a medium and production design techniques as a method in (interior) architectural education. In various courses and formats with international students on Bachelor and Master level, the author is exploring cinematic tools for phenomenological analysis, scenographic reinterpretation, and architectural storytelling in order to expand the range and toolbox of contemporary academic teaching in the architectural context. The common ground of architectural and cinematic space goes back much further than the history of film itself. But despite comprehensive literature on both the topic of sequence in architecture and fundamental film theoretical writings on cinematic space, we are still the men who stare at static representations. Off the beaten path of tried and tested design methods and beyond Gottfried Semper's “haze of carnival candles,” cinematic methods are providing valuable tools for the creation, evaluation and representation of spatial designs in (interior) architecture.
