Relatively few movies show what architects actually do. That said, there are plenty of films that feature characters who are architects. It turns out that from Mike Brady to Howard Roark, these "movie architects" have a lot in common with one another. Seen as a group they tell a lot about how the general public views the profession.

In this month's episode of The Works we talk about how Hollywood treats the architecture profession. Some of that treatment is good, some of it is not. Somewhat surprisingly, all of it is fairly accurate.
