The relationship between architecture, urban environments  and the moving image is deep rooted. It is also mutating. Born in the City Symphony films of the early 20th it was premised on the dynamic and mobile representation of buildings, streets and cities. Caught on celluloid, these architectures were projected on screen and presented like never before. It is a relationship that continues today with interiors, architecture and cities still forming backdrops to action and being the subject of feature films and TV.

Today, however, moving imagery and architecture coexist in multiple other worlds too: virtual reality spaces explored through headsets and haptic sensors; the animated environments of Second Life; the projection mapping of buildings in physical space; the fantastical settings of the gaming industry; fly-through representations of architectural projects; and the real-time algorithmic formation of parametric architecture on a computer screen. This complex new scenario will be explored at this event.
