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.

"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.

An investigation of different uses for the architectural model through history—as sign, souvenir, funerary object, didactic tool, medium for design, and architect's muse. For more than five hundred years, architects have employed three-dimensional models as tools to test, refine, and illustrate their ideas. But, as Matthew Mindrup shows, the uses of physical architectural models extend beyond mere representation. An architectural model can also simulate, instruct, inspire, and generate architectural designs. It can be, among other things, sign, souvenir, toy, funerary object, didactic tool, medium, or muse. In this book, Mindrup surveys the history of architectural models by investigating their uses, both theoretical and practical. Tracing the architectural model's development from antiquity to the present, Mindrup also offers an interpretive framework for understanding each of its applications in the context of time and place. He first examines models meant to portray extant, fantastic, or proposed structures, describing their use in ancient funerary or dedicatory practices, in which models are endowed with magical power; as a medium for architectural reverie and inspiration; and as prototypes for twentieth-century experimental designs. Mindrup then considers models that exemplify certain architectural uses, exploring the influence of Leon Battista Alberti's dictum that models be simple, lest they distract from the architect's ideas; analyzing the model as a generative tool; and investigating allegorical, analogical, and anagogical interpretations of models. Mindrup's histories show how the model can be a surrogate for the architectural structure itself, or for the experience of its formal, tactile, and sensory complexity; and beyond that, that the manipulation, play, experimentation, and dreaming enabled by models allow us to imagine architecture in new ways.

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.

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.

Building prototypes and models is an essential component of any design activity. Modern product development is a multi-disciplinary effort that relies on prototyping in order to explore new ideas and test them sufficiently before they become actual products. Prototyping and Modelmaking for Product Designers illustrates how prototypes are used to help designers understand problems better, explore more imaginative solutions, investigate human interaction more fully and test functionality so as to de-risk the design process. Following an introduction on the purpose of prototyping, specific materials, tools and techniques are examined in detail, with step-by-step tutorials and industry examples of real and successful products illustrating how prototypes are used to help solve design problems. Workflow is also discussed, using a mixture of hands-on and digital tools. A comprehensive modern prototyping approach is crucial to making informed design decisions, and forms a strategic part of a successful designer's toolkit.
