Reflexiones sobre cine & arquitectura: Las formas anticipadas

Translated title of the contribution: Reflections on film and architecture: The anticipated forms

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Fiction film helped to visualize the spaces of the future in a way that was more comprehensible for the viewer, while for its creators (architects, filmmakers, art designers), it requires an exploration based on visual freedom and ephemeral construction. Exempt from a real limitation of technology, fictional spaces in cinematic art become a laboratory that motivates architecture itself, as well as other art forms, from the outside. In this way, the Film was able to construct an imaginary realm that pointed to the models that, from the perspective of intellectual, scientific and architectural thought, thus become possible. Some notable film citations during the twentieth century allow us to go over this imaginary realm from the future forms, responding to prognostics and wishes of the present that were mutating over time. But, in this way, we only prove that this yet again reinterprets the landscape of uncertainty. The atmosphere of the unknown in fiction continues to encourage a field of unlimited creation able to represent reality.
