The way we feel about our surroundings is fundamental to the way we respond to the world around us, including how we respond to architecture. Our emotional response to works of architecture are unspoken, and may go unnoticed, but they are the basis for our primary reaction.
Movement through time and space is how we physically engage and analyze spatial information. We don’t just “see” space, we “feel” it and interact with it. There are fundamental spatial relationships that can only be revealed to the viewer with film. Cinematography captures architecture’s emotional content and patterns as perceived by an observer in motion, recording its complex matrix of relationships as each second in time reveals a new perspective. With the careful application of dialog, music, and sound design, film brings the emotive power of architecture to the viewer while explaining the methodology and feelings with which it was created.
