Oscar-nominated production designer Adam Stockhausen has established himself as a medium for the art-house crowd. He's converted a century-old department store into a magnificent Old World hotel for Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel, designed gloomy plantation houses for Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave, and even built a model of the Berlin Wall for Steven Spielberg's upcoming Cold War thriller. Curbed National recently sat down with the Brooklyn-based designer and learned all about the challenges of creating period trains, miniature funiculars, and elaborate Art Nouveau film sets.
