Film still: Adam and Paul (Lenny Abrahamson, 2004, Ireland)

In his edited book Film Architecture: Set Designs from Metropolis to Blade Runner, first published in 1999, Dietrich Neumann studies cities and interiors represented in European and American films through set design. Research on film architecture has been on the agenda of architectural theorists since the last quarter of the 20th century. This session of the fourth A-IARG conference aims to open a window into current research on film architecture in Ireland and beyond. Academics and professionals who do research on film architecture in Ireland or elsewhere are invited to submit their proposals on one of the questions the session targets:

– How do film directors represent architectural/urban elements in fiction/documentary films made in Ireland or elsewhere?

– How do architects/students use film as a design/analysis/presentation tool in architectural profession/education in Ireland or elsewhere?

– How do architectural theorists/architects collaborate with other scholars/professionals on the research topc of film architecture in Ireland and beyond?

Session chair: Dr Gul Kacmaz Erk, Queen’s University Belfast; g.kacmaz[at]qub.ac.uk.
