an excerpt from the ‘2001: space odyssey’ edition of ‘interiors journal’ by mehruss jon ahi and armen karaoghlanian 

interiors journal‘ by mehruss jon ahi + armen karaoghlanian is an online publication on the 15th of each month, intersecting architectural floor plans with well-known films. the magazine explores the relationship between architecture and motion pictures and has produced seven issues so far, having created blueprints for ‘panic room’ by david fincher; ‘le mépris’ by jean-luc godard; ‘drive’ by nicolas winding refn; ‘raging bull’ by martin scorsese; ‘beauty and the beast’ by gary trousdale and kirk wise; ‘2001: a space odyssey’ by stanley kubrick and ‘the dark knight’ by christopher nolan.

the movies are analyzed and diagrammed in terms of space, focusing on how an area is used throughout a particular scene and how the building design within the clip impacts its narratives and characters. the visuals are supported with in-depth literature, discussing the reasoning and theories behind each evaluation, providing a new perspective on two commonly separate disciplines.
