May the 4th be With You!

May 4, 2011

Happy Star Wars Day! Every year on May 4th, fans everywhere celebrate Star Wars online and in person. While every day is Star Wars Day for many hardcore fans, this is the best time to remind everyone else that the Force is everywhere. (from the Star Wars blog. I didn’t make that up)

10 10. CLOUD CITY, BESPIN. The simple and elegant 16-kilometre wide Cloud City sits high above the planet Bespin. Proprietor Lando Calrissian oversees a well-appointed luxury resort district on its upper levels, complete with hotels and casinos. Echoes of the saucer-shaped structure can be seen on Earth in John Lautner’s Chemosphere House.

As architects, designers and dreamers, Star Wars gave us a view into a new world that we had never seen before. New architecture abounds throughout the movies. Nowadays, continue to surprise people all around the world, and we can now see the movie with a different eye. Perhaps, the architect’s eye.
