ADAM, Sir Ken

'In Conversation' with Sir Ken Adam

Series:
Date: Tuesday 13 October 2009
Time: 15:01
Venue:
Running time: 71 mins

Sir Ken Adam is one of the most important production designers of the 20th century. In this illustrated conversation with AACP Director Shumon Basar, Adam will discuss highlights from an extraordinary career stretching back over 60 years: the transition from architecture to film, the origins of his iconic James Bond sets and the unique relationship he developed with legendary director Stanley Kubrick.
Sir Ken Adam (b. 1921) originally trained in architecture and interior design. In 1962 he designed the first James Bond film, Dr No, and six subsequent Bonds until Moonraker in 1979. Adam’s design for the war room in Stanley Kubrick’s Dr. Strangelove (1962) became an icon of Cold War paranoia, and his minutely detailed period sets for Barry Lyndon (1974) and The Madness of King George (1994) both earned him Academy Awards.
