Model making is a beautiful and skilful craft, and architectural model making is a vital part of the building process. The architectural model is often the first time that a building is visualized in 3D. It can capture the excitement of the architect's vision but can also reveal unforeseen difficulties. Model Making for Architects explains the role of the model within the architectural and planning process. It advises on the many ways of representing a building and the many techniques of making a model. With practical instruction throughout, it is an invaluable tool both for the model maker and for the architect seeking to commission a model of their building. With contributions from leading practictioners, case studies on multi-million pound projects and step-by-step exercises, this new book provides a unique insight into the process of architectural model making, and looks at the new technology and opportunities available to the model maker. What and who is an architectural model for? What type of model should be used, and when? What scale is most appropriate? These questions are answered in this new book which provides a unique insight into the process of architectural model making. Illustrated with examples of top models of multi-million pound projects. Will be invaluable for architectural model makers, architects, surveyors and interior designers. Superbly illustrated with 227 colour photographs. Matt Driscoll is the founding director of Base Models, reknowned for creating beautiful, yet practical architectural models.

Architects' models serve as bridge between an idea and its realization. Models are one of the three means by which an architect invents and develops his design: sketch–model–computer model. No other representational form is as effective in enabling the viewer to perceive the spaces, shapes, surfaces and textures created by the architect's design — it is therefore a prerequisite in the design process. Architectural Models provides clear and comprehensible instruction explaining how design ideas can be skillfully translated into models. Some 200 black and white illustrations and, new to this edition, more than 40 extraordinary, full color photographs, provide a comprehensive visual explication of the text. In this completely revised edition, the authors convey practical basics and offer a wealth of innovative and valuable suggestions for students of architecture or graphic arts, as well as for experienced architectural model makers.

The physical model is an important communication tool for architects. Although the proliferation of CAD programmes has enabled the creation of increasingly complex computer models and virtual environments, there is also a growing need to address the three-dimensional qualities of architecture that may be lost when using such media. This book focuses on the inspiring possibilities for modelling the built environment with all the different media and techniques available. In describing the use of different models in different contexts, the book provides a practical guide to how and why models are used, and what they are used for. This second edition includes more detailed step-by-step exercises, expanded discussion of materials and techniques, updated coverage of digital techniques and new case studies.

Despite the advent of digital visualization software, the non-digital or analog scale model remains a centerpiece of design education, certain celebrated practices and architecture's public relations. Indeed, model manufacture has only become more pervasive since the development of laser cutting and rapid prototyping devices. Why? The physical model remains the most accessible form of architectural communication. As opposed to blueprints or computer renderings, clients and the general public seem to immediately understand the model. Many practitioners use finished models for presentations, competitions and exhibitions. Others use sketch models as a quick, economic and flexible generative tools. This diversity of use leads architects to consider their application. It is only with the rise of the virtual that the advantages and disadvantages of more traditional models can be fully evaluated. This is a turning point for practitioners and educators to understand the multiplicity of model types and functions in an effort to strategically deploy the right sort of model at the appropriate stage in the design process.

"Author Karen Moon identifies two principal types of models: those made for the relatively private functions of design and exchange of ideas and those prepared for the typically more public purposes of communication and presentation. Grounded in a discussion of historic models - Michelangelo's massive wooden models of Renaissance churches, Sir John Soane's beautifully crafted replicas of the Bank of England, Kasimir Malevich's Suprematist Architektons of the early twentieth century - the author's text draws as well on her extensive interviews with architects and modelmakers. Illustrations include rare archival images along with spectacular and creative models from noted international architects."--BOOK JACKET.

The techniques used to represent architectural design are examined in Representational Techniques for Architecture. A broad array of methodologies for developing architectural ideas are described, ranging from two- and three-dimensional conceptual sketches, through to the working drawings required for the construction of buildings. The book offers a range of practical drawing methods, showing how to present and plan layouts, make conceptual sketches, work with scale, use collage and photomontage to create contemporary images, along with techniques to prepare and plan design portfolios.The book also deals with contemporary computer modelling and drawing techniques. In the second edition, 25% of the material is new: many of the images have been updated, and new case studies have been added, for example architect studios such as Coophimmelblau and C J Lim/Studio 8 architects. Additional case studies are drawn from American and international architectural practices and studios. The most up-to-date CAD technology is examined along with illustrations showing how it can be used to create architectural models and plans. The enhanced project sections encourage students to explore further the techniques that they have acquired.
