Filmic Architecture is a Year 5 elective course that focuses on understanding how architecture and urbanism are depicted and expressed in film. The participants are asked to watch a series of movies and decide on a director they want to work with. Though Wes Anderson is always a tempting choice when it comes to architecture and filmography, I chose Hayao Miyazaki as I wanted to better understand the way Spirited Away is spatially structured and expressed throughout the movie. The final outcome was going to be a Japanese-inspired garden then was created by manipulating sand and different objects on a frame. An overall very different approach to what I am used to but this was one of the most enjoyable projects I have taken up as it required cozy movie nights and a lot of hand drawing.
