All you need to make a movie is a girl and a gun .

-Jean-Luc Godard

An integral part of today's culture, film has become a major frame of reference for architects, artists, writers and cultural theorists. Following up on the popularity of the 1994 issue of Architectural Design, 'Architecture and Film I', this title takes a multi-faceted look at the representation of architecture through the big screen. Examples are drawn from a wide range of cinematic periods and genres - early Noir, Soviet cinema, Jacques Tati, Mall Movies, Los Angeles disaster movies, cyborg and sci-fi, horror movies and James Bond. The association between architecture and film is explored from every angle, architecture is looked at as setting and scenery, and as subject. Film-makers give their account of making architectural documentaries; the evolution of cinema buildings from sideshow to arthouse is examined; the architect-turned-director Patrick Keiller is interviewed; and film inspired architectural projects are featured.
