Abstract: Archfilm: Cinema and the Architectural Promenade, engages and addresses the complex and interwoven relationship between the virtual world of cinema and the built environment. The thesis questions whether the architectural promenade, enhanced by the cinematic use of sequence and montage, can create an enhanced and holistic experience for the users of a building and its accompanying site. This enhanced experience will aid in re-sensitizing the visitor to their surroundings within the realities of both the natural and man-made worlds. In creating a cinematically inspired architecture the program of the visual arts and film are shown to enrich, heighten, and embed meaning within the audience's experience as they interact with the project. These ideas will be examined through the program of a movie theater and film school for the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) located in Baltimore, MD.
