PANEL: FILMED SPACES

How do directors use the language of cinema, with its demarcated frame, running time, and two-dimensional space, to capture the majesty and complexity of architecture and design—artistic mediums designed to be explored in depth and interacted with over many years? In this panel, filmmakers will discuss the methods for tackling this unique challenge to bring the wonder of the built environment to the big screen. 60 min. This is a free event! Ticket must be obtained from box office.
