cchu 9034: architecture and film

"Film is the product of modernity, the era of the metropolis, and has expressed its urban view point from its very origin. On the eve of the invention of cinema, a network of architectural forms produced a new spatio-visuality. Sites of transit such as arcades, bridges, railwasys, the electic underground, powered flight, skyscrapers, department stores, the pavilions of exhibition halls, glass houses, and winter gardens incarnated the new geography of mdoernity. Mobility — a form of cinematics — was the essence of these new architectures." 

— Guiliana Bruno, JSAH 2006
