MetadataShow full item record
This thesis looks at the relationship between film-making and place-making. More specifically, the cinematic techniques used in film and how to translate them into architecture. The thesis proposes a film institute that will celebrate the industry of film, as well as enhance post-industrial redevelopment and create a new mixed-use hub for Toronto, Ontario. The industry of film in Toronto is at a peak and continues to grow into an integrated asset for the city. This thesis explores the expansion of the city’s planned redevelopment to transform the Port Lands, along with the out-of-commission Hearn Generating Station, into a beacon for the city. The Port Lands Film Institute will invite film-makers and film enthusiasts, of all ages and professions, to participate in a unique place of production, education, and innovation.
