Summary Architecture and Film looks at the ways architecture and architects are treated on screen and how the film industry perceives them. It then examines how these depictions filter and shape the ways we understand the built environment and explains the significant effect that the film industry has had on the American public's perception of urban, suburban, and rural spaces
