Abstract

This paper explores the framing qualities of architecture in conjunction with the framing operations of cinema. In doing so it refers to philosophical inquiry into architecture and to architectural philosophy as well as to attempts to think film and the architectural together. In what sense or senses can architecture be considered ‘primary’ in relation to cinema? This first question will be explored by considering the inscription or encompassment of the architectural (which term here encompasses generic buildings, specifically located, named buildings, architectural styles, the built environment as well as set decor and set construction) as a foundational gesture in cinema. Even if film does not necessarily figure the built environment, even if it need not be dependent on the presence or generative force of buildings, film will always participate in its own version of architecture’s modelling into a form of territory.
