3/3 This is Alex being escorted from the prison complex en route to the Ludovico treatment center. Somewhat ironically, the building seen here was in fact the new lecture theater block of Brunel University, Uxbridge. It was designed by Richard Sheppard, Robson and Partners, in 1965-66 as part of the university's new campus. Kubrick's feelings about currents in contemporary architecture are made quite evident in this choice of location. --- #StanleyKubrickeExhibition sponsored by #Taschen --- #clockworkorange #brutalist #brutalism #brutalistarchitecture #thisislondon #architecturefriday #discoverkubrick

2/3 This is the home of Mr. and Mrs. Alexander just before Alex and his gang violently attack them. Most of the home's interiors were filmed in the Skybreak house in Radlett, a radically conceptual habitat designed in 1965 by the British architecture firm Team 4. The chair from which Mrs. Alexander emerges to answer the door is Roger and Martin Dean's Retreat Pod, a striking example of the avant garde interior design elements brought in for the Clockwork shoot. The feeling of calm and safety suggested by the meditative environment—and in particular by the protective, cocooning Retreat Pod—intensifies the brutal shock of the ensuing home invasion. --- #StanleyKubrickeExhibition sponsored by #Taschen --- #clockworkorange #architecturefriday #cultmovies #discoverkubrick #stanleykubrick

1/3 I’m Alison Castle ( @idealcheese ), editor of @taschen ’s Stanley Kubrick Archives and upcoming Kubrick DVD books. This week I'm looking at aesthetic themes in A Clockwork Orange (1971, production designer John Barry ) --- Here Kubrick lines up a shot of the droogs in the Korova Milkbar. The light bulbs lining the pedestals of the Moloko Plus dispensers helped amplify the hallucinatory and futuristic aesthetic, but they also served as the main lighting for the scenes, allowing Kubrick freedom to pan without having to worry about getting studio lamps in the shot. --- The furniture and drink dispensers in the form of nude women were inspired by Pop artist Allen Jones's controversial sculptures of 1969-70. The contrast of the black walls and fetishistic white fixtures created a surreal, claustrophobic atmosphere. Though he used it heavily in the film to make a statement, Kubrick found contemporary art solipsistic and uninspiring, telling interviewer Michel Ciment, "I think modern art's almost total pre-occupation with subjectivism has led to anarchy and sterility in the arts." --- #StanleyKubrickeExhibition sponsored by #Taschen #clockworkorange #discoverkubrick #stanleykubrick #setdesign #cultmovies

This Thursday marks Napoleon's 250th birthday. To mark this historic day, the Design Museum looks back at #StanleyKubrick 's unfinished biopic of the military leader. 🇫🇷 --- #DidYouKnow #Kubrick ceated a rolodex of 25,000 index cards that he used to track every movement of every member inside the high command of the French military leader. Here's a sneak peek of some of his notes 👀 Are you as organised as Kubrick? --- 📍 The Kubrick estate 📸 by ©EdReeve | @editphoto --- #napoleon260 #napoleon #frenchhistory #discoverkubrick #visitlondon #thisislondon #explorelondon #culturetrip

2/3 Kubrick used research photos taken in hotels and lodges across western US as inspiration for the Overlook’s interiors, some of which were quite literal reproductions. According to Kubrick, the red bathroom where Jack meets the ghost of Grady was inspired by a Frank Lloyd Wright men’s room in a hotel in Arizona, although I didn’t find any evidence of the original he refers to. Perhaps he mixed up the source, or perhaps this interior was an original… either way, it’s stunning. --- Exhibition sponsored by @taschen --- #taschen #theshining #redrum #setdesign #themakingof #architecturefriday #architecturedesign #architecturephotography #discoverkubrick #stanleykubrick #kubrick #cultmovies #franklloydwright

1/3 I’m Alison Castle ( @idealcheese ), editor of @taschen ’s Stanley Kubrick Archives and upcoming Kubrick DVD books. I’ll be sharing with you some of my favourite examples of Kubrick’s use of architecture and interior design in his films to mark #ArchitectureFriday This week: The Shining (1980, production designer Roy Walker ). ---- The facade of the Shining’s Overlook Hotel, based on the Timberline Lodge in Mt. Hood, Oregon, was replicated on set for exterior shots. (Second unit footage of the actual hotel was used for approach shots. ) Kubrick said, “I wanted the hotel to look authentic rather than like a traditionally spooky movie hotel. The hotel’s labyrinthine layout and huge rooms, I believed, would alone provide an eerie enough atmosphere.” --- #StanleyKubrickeExhibition sponsored by #Taschen --- #discoverkubrick #kubrick #theshining #architecturedesign #redrum #stanleykubrickexhibit #horrorgram #cultfilms #horrorfans #visitlondon #mysecretlondon #thisislondon #londonforyou #londondisclosure #thelondonlife #culturetriplondon #placestosee #architecturephotography #themakingof #setdesign #kubrickday

#ObjectoftheWeek | The Steenbeck company was founded in 1931 by Wilhelm Steenbeck in Hamburg, Germany. Since then, Steenbeck editing tables have become ubiquitous in the film editing community. In total, more than 25,000 machines are in operation around the world. 🎞️ --- Despite the move towards digital media – many devices and archives still use the Steenbeck physical layout for controlling the process. It is a preferred equipment for film archives (such as the Library of Congress' motion picture collection ) and restoration facilities as prints can be quickly and easily inspected with less risk of damage. --- 📸 by ©EdReeve | @editphoto --- #discoverkubrick @stanleykubrick #lovefilm #culturetrip #kubrick

What can you see on the negatives? 👀 --- As it's Bastille Day, the Design Museum looks back on an unfinished masterpiece by #stanleykubrick , #Napoleon 🇫🇷 --- #Kubrick envisioned a far-flung biopic about not just the downfall of the French emperor, but a complete canvas of his inner-circle and domination of the European continent. Kubrick watched a Russian television miniseries of War & Peace and created a rolodex of 25,000 index cards that he used to track every movement of every member inside the high command of the French military leader.

What's inside the cabinet? Tap each drawer to find out! 👀 --- It's Bastille Day today and to mark the occasion, the Design Museum looks back at #StanleyKubrick 's #Napoleon , a film that was never made. 🇫🇷 --- To write his original screenplay, #Kubrick embarked on two years of intensive research; with the help of dozens of assistants and an Oxford Napoleon specialist, he amassed an unparalleled trove of research and preproduction material, including approximately 15,000 location scouting photographs and 17,000 slides of Napoleonic imagery. But alas, Kubrick’s movie was not destined to be: the film studios, first M.G.M. and then United Artists, decided such an undertaking was too risky at a time when historical epics were out of fashion. --- This is an exact replica of the cabinet used by Stanley to store Napoleon research. See it at the Kubrick exhibition.
