Hitchcock's Architecture: Discuss

New, 1 comment

Architecture. Hitchcock. Love. Steven Jacobs' "The Wrong House: The Architecture of Alfred Hitchcock" just dropped on the Amazon. The book posits Hitchcock, a one-time set designer, as a "non-existent architect" who regarded design as paramount to film making. Vertigo-inducing San Francisco has its place in the narrative, as the second half of the book is a treasure trove of floorplan porn— all 26 residential homes uses in his films are visited in photographs and plans.
