 Architecture creates spaces for users to situate themselves and carry out their experiences; however, the narrative of everyday social life is often lost within a banal environment where spaces are constructed for universal use. Exploring the importance of space, movement, time and event in architecture and cinema will help address the issue homogenization of space and propose a methodology to rethink the ways of developing the spaces we inhabit. The aim of this thesis is meant to uncover the substantial connections that have always linked film and spatial awareness. This thesis proposes a cinematic composition of design tactics, where filmmaking principles are reconceived as design methodology for the creation of cinematic space. By applying the techniques to the project of the Rest Hut, cinematic architecture will be uncovered. Investigating the relationship between cinema and architecture will establish architecture as an unfolding event that can immerse its participants in a spectacle of space.
