Advanced architectural modelmaking

£20.00

Product description

Modelmaking is about building a three-dimensional and reduced-scale representation of a structure or architectural intervention. Models possess a double significance: on the one hand, they are scale representations of projects; on the other hand, they are themselves objects endowed with expressive significance. Advanced Architectural Modelmaking explains the key techniques used to create architectural presentation models.

A comprehensive reference for anyone who makes models, either by hand or with the help of a computer, this book covers the basic characteristics of architectural models as a form of representation, the materials and tools used, and the processes involved, considering both the theoretical aspects and main techniques. A step-by-step guide illustrates the entire procedure involved in creating five different types of architectural models. An ideal testing ground for investigating new physical and material solutions, models constitute an intermediate phase in the architectural process between the initial idea and final construction. An essential instrument in presenting and communicating designs, they also help in assessing and checking the solutions that have been conceived, allowing the structural organization and the spatial and massing composition of the work to be reproduced, as well as showing details of the construction: materials, colors, textures, and interrelationships with the environment.
