Kubrick’s renaissance is undoubtedly in full swing. The Design Museum opened last week one of the most compelling exhibitions of the year “Stanley Kubrick: The Exhibition”. No, it isn’t a controversial statement. Kubrick is a grand master of the film industry: he probably wouldn't have become an iconic and such an influential film director without his compelling stories, visuals and perfection of working. He directed 13 ground-breaking films throughout the course of his 60-year career.


Kubrick lived and worked in the UK for over 40 years, which gave him space and time to develop each of his films very carefully, as well as many great sources of architecture. He moved to the countryside to Hertfordshire during the filming of “2001: A Space Odyssey” and lived there for 28 years with his family until his death in 1999.
