Cinema and design, architectural design education, architectural design ideas, space perception.


This research focuses on revealing the contribution of cinema movies to understanding design ideas and stimulating student cooperation in architectural design education procedure. The topic is based on the use of cinema films as a methodological tool in architectural design education leading to the comprehension of the meaning in space production and architectural design. It is suggested that the film’s “truth” coincides with the designer’s “truth” as they are both subjective and are communicated to their potential viewers or users. They both use visual and functional qualities for creating spaces that do not pre-exist. Through these paths and similarities, it can be argued that the cinema image can alter and enrich the vision of a designer.
