Films & Architecture: “The Cook, The Thief, His Wife & Her Lover”

For the second time in our section, we propose a film. This one has not an obvious architectural name, however the way in which the director works with space results very attractive from an architects’ point of view.

The story occurs within no more than five locations and it is full of allegories through a strong use of lighting and colours. Enjoy a classic and let us know your comments!

Films & Architecture: “The Belly of an Architect”

In ArchDaily we have mentioned films, whether because of its content closely related with Architecture, or because of the space, photography, atmosphere, or any other relevant feature to our practice that could mean a certain value through an Architect’s eyes.

From this week and on, we will propose a film for you to watch – enjoy – and comment if you want to share your thoughts about the movie with us. We have already a starting list which still open for your recommendations.

The first movie to introduce is a classic from the ’80, “The Belly of an Architect” by the British director Peter Greenaway.

More info after the break.
