HITCHCOCK. Jacobs, Steven

Pap. Rotterdam, 2007

Book ID: 76800

Hitchcock's films provide a substantial and intriguing collection of architectural aspectsÐfrom his claustrophobic, single-set films such as 'Rope' and 'Rear Window' to his characteristic use of the house as a labyrinth and trap to his use of architectural motifs such as stairs and windows to develop narrative structures and typical themes. Jacobs examines Hitchcock's architecture and the myriad interpretations and issues it raises, and also discusses a series of domestic buildings in the director's films with the help of reconstructed floor plans.
