Oscar-nominated production designer Adam Stockhausen has established himself as a medium for the art-house crowd. He's converted a century-old department store into a magnificent Old World hotel for Wes Anderson's "The Grand Budapest Hotel," designed gloomy plantation houses for Steve McQueen's "12 Years a Slave," and even built a model of the Berlin Wall for Steven Spielberg's upcoming Cold War thriller. Curbed National recently sat down with the Brooklyn-based designer, and learned all about the challenges of creating period trains, miniature funiculars, and elaborate Art Nouveau film sets.
