Reapproaching Cinematic Space as an archive

Author: Nina Bačun, University of Zagreb


Cinematic space as an archive relies on the perceived potential of the ‘instrumental’ role of filmic architectural space, its impact on narration in film, and its influence on built space. Cinematic space is not passive, seen as a tool for critical research on architecture, it permits new readings of architectural space. Within cinematic space one could learn how to approach uncertain past, acute present, and desired future by rethinking the practice of archiving an intangible heritage of virtual environments.
