TRON: Architecture of Light
Director Joseph Kosinki is making his big-screen directorial debut with the upcoming TRON: Legacy movie after a well accomplished career as commercial director behind the “Starry Night” - Halo 3 and “Mad-World” - Gears of War commercials.  While creating the visual look for TRON Kosinski relied on his background architecture to create the scientific, geometrical and glossy world.

In architecture school, Joseph Kosinski had to post his work in class for professor critiques before returning to the drawing board to fix his mistakes. Years later, he used the same approach to codify the look of Disney’s Tron: Legacy

Inspired by real-world architects Kosinki looked to the clean and stark pioneers of modern architecture like Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Louis Kahn.  “This is a world that had to be designed from scratch,” says Kosinski. “I don’t know how you can direct a movie like this if you’re not interested in design and architecture. It became the guiding philosophy.”
