Sometimes there's architecture IN a film, and sometimes architecture is LIKE a film. But sometimes the architecture IS the film: when it acts as a physical retainer of public ideology, when it provides a shared visceral-symbolic experience that transcends social differences or when it defines a cultural typology. When a work of film, or television or advertising rises above just being a thing to see, and becomes a MECHANISM for a WAY of SEEING, that is the Architecture OF Film

Architecture of "Dr. No" 
Art Direction by Ken Adam
A wacky mixture of brutalism, faux-Polynesian-organic and Hollywood-Spanish Colonial. (With high-corporate industrial & retro-Schindleresque details).
