ABSTRACT

In this paper, I look at the empowering opportunities in architectures of dubious intent via a study of select canons and cultural myths imbedded in the formula for the 007 film series made before 2006. While the inevitable nature of Bond’s relationships does not change much, the emergence of the operative character of the Bond girl establishes a tendency for her to opportunistically operate the physical surroundings in the pursuit of strategic advantage. Architecture’s spatial tropes lend a helping hand in the formulaic opposition of Bondvs.Bondgirl.
