Architectural Models: Construction and Design Manual
Both as an instrument of communication as well as a means of design development there is no substitute for the physical model. It is no coincidence that architecture and model making share a rich history, so intrinsic to the design process it is impossible to imagine successfully understanding the essence of a design without the contribution of physical models. The most important models are those that lead to design conviction, that strengthen the design through their production and evaluation.
This volume, conceived as a reference book, extensively presents works by renowned scale model studios. On more than 1,000 pages it showcases architectural models of avant-garde architects and designers from all over the world, among others: JDS Architects, UN Studio, J. Mayer H. Architects, the next ENTERprise, David Garcia Studio.
