(written from a Production point of view)
Klaus Hugo Adam, later known as Sir Kenneth "Ken" Hugo Adam, OBE (5 February 1921 – 10 March 2016; age 95) was a renowned Berlin-born British production designer, Academy Award winner, and veteran of more than seventy films between 1948 and 2001.
Adam is best known for his now-iconic set designs for Dr. Strangelove and seven James Bond films including You Only Live Twice and Moonraker. As the set designer for the Bond films, he was known for integrating futurism with classical design elements. This approach continued under his successor, Peter Lamont.
Ken Adam is one of the few German nationals who served in the UK's Royal Air Force during World War II.
