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.
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.

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 programs 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.
The book provides step-by-step instruction, showing models and procedures at different stages of completion to facilitate a thorough understanding of the materials and processes being discussed.

"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.

ARCHITECTURAL MODEL contains projects related to Architectural model. What meaning does a model have in architecture? As Ben van Verkel (UN Studio) states below, architecture and model shares history. Model and architecture cannot be thought separately. Whether their students or studios, the model is made merely for presentation at the end. Being chased by the deadline, the model is made only from the finished plans. It is the beginning and the end of model making - no process. Nonetheless, as everyone knows, model, like diagram, is a design tool in architecture. Study models develop the project. The models made from these processes become the communication tool with the design team or professors, which helps develop the project further. Damdi tries to illustrate projects of architects who use model as an excellent design tool. Moreover, the 200 page APPENDIX has more than 1000 images of models, categorized by materials. This will help one skim through the overall sense of architectural model.

This book offers an explanation of why scale models are important to the design process. Albert Smith takes the reader through the history and significance of models in architecture from the magic of the Egyptian scale model to the present day. Through this description of the relationship between architecture and the scale model, Smith demonstrates the most effective process between concept and 'machine', between the idea and the final building. The great value of this book is to reveal the nature of the scale model and to unlock the tremendous potential of this design tool as a thinking and communicative advice. His chronological analysis goes on from Egypt through Rome to the relationship between the Greek paradigm scale model and then on to Medieval and Renaissance models. It concludes with the models of the Spanish architect Antonio Gaudi, the Russian Constructivists, the American architect Louis Khan and finally looks at the role of scale models in the present day through the work of the Polish/American architect Daniel Libeskind and the American Frank Gehry.

Models are an essential component of the architect's design process. As tools of translation, models assist the exploration of the possible and illustrate the actual. While models have traditionally served as representational and structural studies, they are increasingly being used to suggest and solve new spatial and structural configurations. Models, the eleventh volume of the highly regarded journal 306090, explores the role of the architectural model today in relation to the idea, the diagram, the technique, and the material. Models includes contributions from engineers, scientists, poets, painters, photographers, historians, urbanists, and architects both young and experienced.
