Conceive, Create and Convince
This book is a step-by-step guide about how to create convincing architectural models. Borne out of the authors' experience and enjoyment in the use of models in education and in professional practice, it is an essential manual for students of spatial disciplines, such as urban planning, garden and landscape architecture, public space or interior design, and anyone with an interest in model making.
Many people see a model as a finished product, but it can be much more than that. Models can be used in the study and research phases of a project and are essential as design and communication tools until the final presentation model is ready to be finalized. In this manual, each of these applications is explained in detail. Readers discover the most appropriate type of model to match the look and mode of work. Furthermore, the practical side of model construction is explained and illustrated.
The three types of models that run parallel to each other include the research, communication, and presentation models, and these are illustrated with real-life scenarios from architecture and design offices around the world, which is a unique and vital aspect to this book. The manual can be seen as a roadmap for the manufacture of models and a detailed reference book for outlining the latest materials and techniques.
