Abstract: Modern glass architecture, as interpreted by theorists and critics of the Modern Movement, contributed to the rise of a new era – one that involved a new conception of space and new relationships between the human gaze and the architectural object. This new era in architecture is also frequently closely linked with the emergence of cinema as a new medium. In contrast to the enclosed spaces of nineteenth century dwellings, the new glass architecture was to open up housing to the exterior, framing the space and the vista. At the same time, the new cinema began to use vision and emotion as specific tools. Film-makers and architects established a common ground through the cinematic space, based on transparency and movement.
