Description

What does Alfred Hitchcock have to do with a schoolhouse, albeit one that has attributes of the Victorian period? Furthermore, what are Mayan temples doing in Los Angeles? To find the answers to these questions we’re going to the movies… via architecture!

 

Using brief clips from selected films, AHC Education Committee member, walking tour docent, and retired architect, Bob Hermanson will explore the role of architecture in film. This program is sure to be an exciting adventure into realms of make believe, while also situated in the real world of concrete and glass cities. Along the way you’ll learn some of the vocabulary of film and architecture, as well as the art of storytelling and the fascinating, and architectural, role of film “sets”. The clapperboard is ready… let’s go to the movies!!!

 

Bob Hermanson has taught architecture at several universities in the US and in Paris. As a practicing architect he has worked in Minneapolis, Salt Lake City, and Depoe Bay, Oregon.
