DESIGN OF OUR TIMES / LICENSE TO BUILD: THE ARCHITECTURE OF JAMES BOND.


GUEST BLOG / By the Writers at HomeAdvisor
--Few cinema franchises have influenced American culture like “James Bond” has—and that includes architecture. Manicured estates, Prairie-style house plans and well-furnished lodges provide more than incredible film sets and backdrops for the movies. 

They spark inspiration and are easier to imitate on your own property than you might think. 

Below, you’ll find 50 essential buildings from the franchise immortalized by contemporary artist Leonie Wharton. This minimalist poster explores Bond’s architectural history and imagines how you might bring some of 007 home.
