Fiction and Entertainment Design Studio 2016/2017 Graduation Showreel



This is a collection of clips from the projects developed in the 2016 Fall Semester of SCI-Arc’s Fiction and Entertainment Postgrad Masters Program. Project work was shot on location in India, recontextualizing Mumbai and Bangalore as a speculative future city.

Our perception of the world is largely shaped by the mediums of fiction and entertainment. These extraordinary shared languages are the vehicles through which we exchange ideas and engage with our environment. It is impossible to underestimate the importance of media in the production of culture. Given the critical role contemporary media plays in our lives, it is urgent to widen the scope of architecture beyond just buildings alone. Why shouldn’t architects design the next Hollywood blockbuster? Virtual reality environments? Viral videos? Political campaigns? In Fiction and Entertainment we engage the techniques of popular culture to imagine and visualize alternative worlds. Deeply embedded in the entertainment industry of Los Angeles, this program is a place to start telling new kinds of stories about the emerging conditions of the twenty-first century.
