Star Wars (1977) is more than a film. It’s a worldwide phenomenon. The Star Wars saga is its own universe, and with such distinct characters and mythology, even talking about Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope as a standalone film (which is part of such a larger whole) is a fascinating exercise. It’s quite remarkable that for a film that takes place in space, in worlds outside of ours, it still holds up, architecturally. The most important architectural spaces in Star Wars are the Millennium Falcon and the Death Star. These are essential spaces for the Rebel Alliance and the Galactic Empire, respectively. The Millennium Falcon is a spacecraft, whereas the Death Star is a mobile megastructure and galactic superweapon. In our diagrams, we have emphasized key scenes from these locations; in the Millennium Falcon Floor Plan, when Obi-Wan Kenobi and Han Solo talk about the Force as Luke Skywalker practices with a lightsaber, and in the Death Star Section, when Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia swing over a broken bridge.
