To stay inspired, find here a small (continuously growing) list of pure architectural delight expressed in movies. Renowned for their architectural touch, without being on the topic of architecture – all bullet-proved by me:

  • “The Grand Budapest Hotel” 2014 – for its candid pastiche and interiors
  • “Blade Runner” 1982 – for its powerful futuristic imagery
  • “Mon Oncle” 1958 – for its caricature of modernist architecture
  • “The Fountainhead” 1943 – simply classic
  • “Dogville” 2003 – for its lack of architecture
  • “Muttertag” 1993 – for its critique on social housing in Vienna, Austria
  • “Arrival” 2016 – for its clean speciality
  • “2001: A Space Odyssey” 1968 – this movie is practically just about space
  • “Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus” 2006 – for its textures and colours
