Watercolor floor plans of houses from movies and television, by Boryana Ilieva.
Imagine a world where architects design houses based on a scenario and thus direct the life of the future inhabitants. Nowadays it is mostly cinema that preserves this dream and it is director Bong Joon-Ho who built such a house for his latest film Parasite. He designed it based on the script he wrote. Read below for yourselves what formed the shapes of Bong Joon-ho's house: 1. People should be able to spy on each other, easily listening to conversations without being seen 2. The coffee table and bed need to be big enough and high enough to fit lying people under 3. There has to be a manifested shining entrance leading to the biggest secret in the house 4. The second-floor hallway needs to offer hiding niches Please, do add to that list! The film is absolute fun, but the greatest part is thinking about why Bong Joon-ho had to create this and that shape.

Merry Christmas everyone! Here is the New York apartment of Stanley Kubrick during the early 1960s, where he lived before moving permanently to England. Later in London he rebuilt it as a studio set for EYES WIDE SHUT and settled Cruise and Kidman’s characters in it. The paintings on the walls are original works of his wife Christiane and her daughter. I have this thing about directors’ personal houses lately. I wonder where that thread will take us in 2019… Cheers! And don’t miss my favorite Christmas film okay? #eyeswideshut #productiondesign #interiorsketch
You don’t have to bother yourselves watching Blue Velvet (1986) over and over again (or Zizek’s analysis on it) to get one of the main hidden stories in the film. Every performance follows a simple architectural scheme: dark rows for the public from one side, backstage rooms on the other side, and, of course, well lit stage between the sides where performance actually takes place. The floorplan of Dorothy’s apartment possesses all of the above to convey the message of a deeply complicated Freudian drama: Jeffrey (Kyle MacLachlan) acts as the shocked but hypnotizingly attracted son having a reserved voyeur seat in the first row (the closet). Dorothy (Isabella Rossellini) and Frank (Dennis Hopper) get to be acting the parents that actually want to be seen as they use the main stage set (living room) for exposing their strange sexual relationship as a templelike ritual. The kitchen? Well, it had to be there as Lynch wants to trick us – to make believe that the stage set is an apartment only and that all of the explanations above are irrelevant. #BlueVelvet #kylemaclachlan @kyle_maclachlan #davidlynch #slavojzizek #zizek #movies #movielover #ilovemovies #movieflyer #movieposter @juxtapozmag #architecturesketch #arch_more @arch_more #archisketcher @arch_grap @architecturesketch #arquitetapage #patreon @patreon @artistic_unity_ #society6 @society6
