Yes, Amazing indeed. Bravo. An article by Mitchell Schwarzer (The Consuming Landscape: Architecture in the Films of Michelangelo Antonioni) may be of interest. Though not a film itself, it does speak to the Italian director's use of architecture as a key metaphorical/sympbolic ingredient to subtext ideas in many of his most interesting films. The link below is that article. http://books.google.com/books?id=Dxis1i4jxVwC&pg=PA197&lpg=PA197&dq=architecture+used+in+Antonioni+films&source=bl&ots=55T_kfy-Vj&sig=NxVxUVPFZuHLRlySz98zHD251mA&hl=en&sa=X&ei=fLoxT9SpDMGbiAL-_9HDCg&ved=0CCAQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=architecture%20used%20in%20Antonioni%20films&f=false
