Architecture and film have many things in common. Film narratives are embedded in scenes that visually support the story. Sometimes architecture even performs the role of an actor. Conversely, film with its multifacted changing atmosphere reveals new layers of architecture which, outside cinema, would remain concealed. In conclusion, film as a mass medium influences the way architecture is perceived, and its images in society. Since the beginning of cinema, architecture has formed a symbiosis with film. 

with its systematic analysis, this book offers a scientifically researched history of mutual influence, starting with filmography as a typology of well-known film sets through to the description of the chameleon effect between film and architecture.
