Lecturer in Architecture (Graduate Tutor)


This paper examines the potential of bringing together filmic language and architectural language to describe the experience of moving through the complex fabric of the modern city. In particular the paper focuses on how the city might be read through the use of ‘filmic transitions’ such as cuts and dissolves and how this has the potential to open up a new hybrid syntax which designers can use to intervene within the city.
