Frank Lloyd Wright's Sowden House in The xx's "I Dare You" music video.

Share music videos you may know that have (lesser known) architectural landmarks / cameos!

As the old lady here I will share this old thread on 80s music videos that had an influence on my thoughts about architecture.

More current, but not a music video: the architecture (especially the skyline pans) in the show Gotham is stunning.

I love the house where they shot "Sorry."


Speaking of Beyonce, her sister Solange has been integrating some cool architecture into her music videos like the Chong Hua Sheng Mu Holy Palace in Texas for Don't Touch My Hair and Roberto Bruno's "Spaceship House" for Cranes in The Sky.

jamesaleisterbarcelona From wikipedia: "Jonathan Glazer describes how the walls move on a stationary grey floor with no detail, to give the illusion that objects on the floor are moving. In several shots, chairs or couches are fixed to the walls so that they appear to be standing still, when in fact they are moving. In other shots chairs remain stationary on the floor, but the illusion is such that they appear to be moving. The moving walls were not completely rigid and can be seen in some shots to wiggle slightly."


not capital A architecture, but a beautiful use of vernacular settings as backdrops:
