‘Le Caligarisme’, Architectural Space and Virtual Reality

Virtual reality as an investigative tool to better understand architecture in cinema in the case study of The Cabinet of Dr Caligari


Many theorists have cited The Cabinet of Dr Caligari (1920) as the reason for changing their standpoint regarding cinema as an art form. Utilising virtual reality as an investigative tool and method of analysis, this work aims to give scholars a unique opportunity to understand better this expressionistic masterpiece's archival materials and architectural involvement. This research contributes to preserving cultural heritage, not only from a filmmaking perspective but also from an architectural standpoint.
