No wonder there’s a whole subreddit dedicated to evil-looking buildings that has a whopping 904k members. A dystopian architecture has been capturing our imagination for years, especially in movies. Think of Blade Runner’s Tyrell Corporation or Robocop’s Omni Consumer Products, the aesthetics of dystopian capitalism is a staple of many films’ key antagonists.
According to 99percentvisible, what’s fascinating about the evil megacorporation is that its architectural aesthetic has remained virtually unchanged throughout its history: brooding Late Modernist (AKA High-tech or Structural Expressionist) buildings have become a well-worn trope, reaching a peak during the sci-fi smorgasbord of the 80s.
When it comes to a specific architectural period, Modernism has always been at the forefront of a sinister movie. Fritz Lang’s Metropolis with its Art Deco styling and Bond villain’s house are great examples. Other architectural periods of evil corporations include Late Modernism as seen in Evil, Inc. which was inspired by architecture between 1960 and 1980.
