TEN ROMANCE FILMS FOR ARCHITECTURE / URBAN DESIGN ENTHUSIASTS
A SINGLE MAN (2009)
This story of love and loss stars John Lautner’s
1949 Schaffer Residence. The film’s immaculate Mid-Century style is the result
of a collaboration between director Tom Ford and Mad Men production designer
IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE (2000)
considered to be one of the most beautiful films ever made, this is as much a
lyrical portrait of ‘60′s Hong
Kong as it is a tale of doomed romance. The 12th Century Temples of
Angkor Wat also make an appearance.
3. BEFORE SUNSET (2004) As in
the previous instalment of this trilogy, the pleasures of wandering around an
unfamiliar city provide this film with its context and structure, and also reinforce
its romantic theme of a journey of accidental discovery.
4. THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS (2001) Wes
Anderson’s signature aesthetic had its most elaborate outing then to date, with
the iconic 111 Archer Avenue, home to (amongst others) star-crossed lovers
/adopted siblings Margot and Richie.
5. LOST IN TRANSLATION (2003) The
loneliness, cultural disorientation, and general sense of freedom and discovery
that come with being in an utterly foreign city provide the catalyst for an
6. MANHATTAN (1979)
this film for a visit to Frank Lloyd Wright’s Guggenheim Museum, and for the
fact that its central love story actually takes place not between the
characters of Isaac and Tracy, but between Woody Allen and New York.
7. HER (2008)
Spike Jonze’s near-future LA is a cleaned up, greened-up amalgam of the
actual present-day city and the Pudong business district of Shanghai,
infused with the palette of a Jamba Juice store.
8. BRIEF ENCOUNTER (1945) One
for all the urban designers out there, this is a film about two individuals who
are drawn into each other’s lives by the use of public transport :-). For a less
iconic riff on the same theme, there’s also the Meryl Streep / Robert De Niro FALLING
IN LOVE (1984) (in which De Niro plays an architect). Both films
celebrate the kind of chance encounters which are missed when sitting alone in
a car on a motorway.
9. ONCE (2006)
Again the city streets (in this case those of
Dublin) are the catalyst for romance, here between a Big Issue seller and a
busker, whose relationship evolves during a lunchtime spent in an local music
10. BLADERUNNER(1982) As with some of the others, this
isn’t technically a romance film, but its love story is as integral to
the movie as Frank Lloyd Wright’s Ennis House, Sumner Hunt/ George
Wyman’s Bradbury Building, and that perpetually rainy cyber-punk city.
Cinema’s most beautiful (and romantic) urban dystopia.
CHUNGKING EXPRESS (1994), WALL E (2008), WINGS OF DESIRE (1987),
LA JETEE (1962), AMELIE (2001), À BOUT DE SOUFFLE (1960).

The Sanctuary of Athena Polias Nikephoros (Athena of the City, Bringer of Victory) was at the Pergamon Acropolis. The monumental gateway, which stood at the northeast corner of the sanctuary, was built by Eumenes II in the early 2nd century BC.
The two-storey building, had a porch of four Doric columns (tetrastyle) on the ground floor, above which was a dedicatory inscription by Eumenes to Athena Nikephoros. The upper storey was a balcony with four Ionic columns and fronted by a military frieze depicting armour and weapons.
The Sanctuary of Athena Nikephoros, on the southwest corner of the walled citadel on the Acropolis, was one of Pergamon’s oldest religious centres, used for the worship of Athena and Nike.
((I’m so surprised so many people were actually interested in this topic. So finally here is a “brief” summary of the GIMG/DEFÜMB. I hope you enjoy it. If you have any questions… feel free to ask! I’m happy to answer all the questions))
Until the end of the 12th
century, Europe was divided in several big kingdoms in which also
Germany found it’s place led by the Hohenstaufen. In these big
kingdoms witches lived together mostly in small communities disguised
as workhouses, orphanages or even brothels where they had suffering
lives. It wasn’t until the 13th century when Europe’s
countries started to divide even more that Germany was split into
hundreds of small dukedoms and shires, making it difficult for the
people living there. Around that time (the exact date is unknown
until today) when Gerda the Protectress made a decision. She left the
orphanage she lived in and together with other witches from the same
orphanage, she walked to the forests. This forest is known as
Schwarzwald (“Black Forest”) today. On the way they were
able to visit other places filled with witches and asked them to
follow as well. It was not difficult to convince them since most of
them knew it was dangerous to stay.
It was the time the church
started to become stronger and people started to talk about druda,
malefica or hagzissa: words to describe witches. (The
word witch, in German: Hexe,
wasn’t used yet and wouldn’t be established for another
century.) This is why they started become scared. They heard about
people burning down houses in this or that village because a druda
might have killed a neighbour’s pig.

I have always prided myself on being able to pick
up on the little things. Those little
tics that people have, their quirks that make them who they are. I notice those things, and I use them to tell
how people feel, what mood they are in, whether or not they are being
Dean, for example, has a few of these little
things that give him away. Like when he
thinks something dirty, or trying to be seductive, his eyebrows raise and he
licks his bottom lip. It sounds pretty
obvious, but he has perfect the art of doing this just ever so slightly that
you may notice it if you were paying attention.
