Since the end of the 19th century, cinema and the city have been intrinsically related to each other. Movies have been interested in the representation of places, lifestyles, and human conditions, on the other hand, the change in the society and lifestyle and all other aspects of daily life in the city had an expanded reflection on the movies. Indeed, movies can provide a comprehensive image of urban living, they confront us with hidden layers of the city, those which cannot be fully represented in any other way than moving pictures.
This competition seeks to straddle the border between the art of filmmaking and the built environment, to see how a novel narration of urban living can have consequences.
Architecture and movies – cinema intervened more after the technological inventions. Cinema became more inspiring and interesting for the architectural agenda. Movies are studied and analyzed more and more as this field grows. There is a growing scholarship in this field. The fusion of architecture and cinema depicts how these two art forms intervene in a subtle way. The essence of producing spaces in these eternalized worlds becomes more influential.

The addition of art of Movie Production to the art of architecture can help the better understanding of the true nature and characteristics of architecture, for instance, the realistic effect, aesthetic dimension, functional aspect of space, feeling the created sense of well-being, and making the presence of the human factor more evident.
