Resumen

29

Desde su apertura al público en 1965, el megaestructural Scarborough College de John Andrews -actualmente Universidad de Toronto, Scarborough- disfrutó del reconocimiento universal. Saludado por Kenneth Frampton como “con mucho el más atrevido, completo y radical... de todos los complejos universitarios completados en los últimos años”, Scarborough ha disfrutado, a diferencia de muchas otras estructuras brutalistas, de una existencia pacífica y exitosa: impoluto, pese a ampliaciones posteriores, el Andrews Building, como se lo conoce hoy, no solo ha sobrevivido hasta nuestros días, sino que se ha convertido en el núcleo reverenciado de un emblemático campus universitario. Sin embargo, junto con su próspera historia como instalación universitaria, Scarborough también ha disfrutado de una prolífica doble vida como localización cinematográfica, prestando sus rasgos arquitectónicos a una variedad de perversas corporaciones, prisiones futuristas o instalaciones gubernamentales. En este artículo se examinan algunas de las muchas apariciones de Scarborough en la pantalla, así como las diferentes formas en que el cine ha representado, apropiado, recontextualizado, transformado e incluso ampliado el edificio más allá del diseño construido por Andrews.
