Ken Adams - Architecture, Design and Film

In the next few blogs in our Architecture, Film and Design section, we'd like to feature the work of some of the top production designers in the history of film.

Ken Adams is basically the grand 'daddy' in this field, as he was one of the first people in Britain to be credited with this role in films. During his long career he created some of the most iconic sets in film history including the Pentagon War Room set in Dr. Strangelove.

Ken however is most famously know for his work on the James Bond series for 17 years, hired on the first film Dr No in 1962 through to Moonraker in 1979. Working with only £14,000 on Dr No, Ken went onto designing the largest sound stage in the world (at the time), the supertanker set for The Spy Who Loved Me. Definitely a production designer who's been keeping the Britain end up ! 

Below are a series of Ken's sketches from Dr No, Goldfinger, The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker.
