Hitchcock’s films provide a substantial and intriguing collection of architectural aspects – from his claustrophobic, single set films, such as ‘Rope’ and ‘Rear Window’ and his use of famous monuments for climatic scenes – to the characteristic use of the house as a labyrinth and trap, and of architectural motifs such as stairs and windows to develop narrative structures and typical themes.
