by Jordan Kushins When Tron raced into theaters on neon treads in 1982, the futuristic backdrops were a vis-ual revelation for cinema geeks.

To create a setting for the sequel befitting the original, Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski approached the project with an architect’s sensibility, building real-world locations to ground the fantastical CGI.
