ESSENTIAL WORKSHOP: What is Cinematic Architecture?

First, experiments in Pascal Schöning’s diploma unit in the Architectural Association, London and the developmental redefinition of ARCHITECTURE and SPACE by Cinématic Architecture Tokyo referring to Marcus Vitruvius Pollio‘s and other relating ideas and thoughts by architects, theorists and critics in overseas were introduced.

Second, the descriptions and examples that are not familiar in Japan about cinématic architecture by architects, theorists and critics in overseas in books and magazines were presented to reveal its vision to the future.

Then in the discussion after the main sessions was really creative as we talked about relationship between film, architecture and urban space as well as the meaning of ‘place’ in sculpture. It’s expanded variety of directions. It’s a sort of surprising that there is some people in Tokyo who are interested in such a unique subject.
