In this cycle, architecture is as protagonist as women and men who designed, defended and recorded it on the big screen. These are visions - some utopian, some dystopian, some very real - that express eternal debates underlying the practice of architecture and the safeguarding of heritage: modern vs old; dream vs reality; public vs private.
Metropolis (Fritz Lang, Germany, 1927)
In 2026, a futuristic city called Metropolis is divided between the working class, which lives in darkness underground, and the rich industrialists that delight in the grandeur of a futuristic city. The tension between these two societies is expressed through images that have become some of the most iconic of the 20th century. A classic of German expressionist cinema, Metropolis is perhaps the most famous and influential silent movie. Its geometric, modern sets were to influence the best in modern science fiction.
