fiction and entertainment

What we think the world looks like is largely determined by fiction and entertainment—extraordinary shared languages 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 vast array of media available, it is urgent to widen the scope of architecture beyond buildings alone. Why shouldn’t architects design the next Hollywood blockbuster? Virtual reality environments? Viral videos? Political campaigns? Deeply embedded in the entertainment industry of Los Angeles, this program is a place to start telling new kinds of stories about the alternative realities of the twenty-first century.

The program requires attendance in the fall, spring, and summer terms.
