Architecture is an important discipline for interrogating the politics of science and technology in that it necessarily responds to successive ideas about the structure and functioning of the human organism while being a cultural product which both reflects and utilises technoscientific ideas and their effects in the social realm.With this in mind, I want to examine the way that late 20th century science fiction film making has imagined the future city, not least because the genre is necessarily in a highly reflexive relationship to the technologies of visual production which enable its realisation of potential urban configurations and architectural developments. What are the implications for a politics of the body in the relationship between urban space, film space, the technologies of the cinema and spectatorship?
