The physical scale model is often cited as an important tool ofcommunication for architecture students and practitioners alike. Althoughthe proliferation of CAD programmes has enabled the creation ofincreasingly complex computer models and virtual environments, there isalso a growing need to address the three-dimensional qualities ofarchitecture that may be lost when using such media. This book focuses onthe inspiring possibilities for modelling the built environment with allthe different media and techniques that are now available. Throughdescription of the use of different models in different contexts, the bookprovides a practical and effective guide to how and why models are used, inaddition to what they are used for, and, furthermore, how they relate toarchitecture education. Following a brief introduction, the book isdivided into three sections: Media, Types and Applications. The book isgenerously illustrated with photographs of models, accompanyingcommentaries, and step-by-step practical instructions on the varioustechniques associated with modelmaking. Architectural Modelmaking willprovide a concise yet broad ‘toolbox' for students of architecture.
