THE ARCHITECTURE OF THE SCREEN: ESSAYS IN CINEMATOGRAPHIC SPACE. Graham Cairns. Intellect Books, Bristol, 2013. Published in the U.S.A. by Intellect Books, University of Chicago Press. 356 pp. with 167 ills. 23 x 17 cm. ISBN 9781841507118 In English.
Publisher's description: With the birth of film came the birth of a revolutionary visual language. This new, unique vocabulary -- 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 film'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.
