How do you know if you’re a villain? You think building on the sea floor or at the bottom of a volcano sounds good…really good.
This evening, celebrate the unreal real estate that classic spy villains call HQ. What goes into planning a place where evil plotters can freely plot? Innovative architect Chad Oppenheim of Oppenheim Architecture + Design, took on this question in his new book Lair: Radical Homes and Hideouts of Movie Villains.
Oppenheim will discuss the design influences and impact of these stunning, sophisticated, envy-inducing expressions of the warped drives and desires of their occupants. But first, enjoy a cocktail fit for Blofeld, view the diabolical dioramas entered in our mini-lair competition, and explore how to escape should a rogue restrain you with zip ties while powering up a laser!
Books will be for sale and signing at the event.
