Architecture and Modelbuilding: Concepts, Methods, Materials
The architectural model is a working and design tool with a part to play in representing architecture alongside the presentation drawing. Designers also use it to discover and design architecture. Proportions and spatial relationships can be quickly investigated using simple materials such as paperboard. No other form of depiction allows space and architecture, its surfaces and plasticity, to be perceived both visually and haptically.
The book Architecture and Model Building includes outstanding examples explaining the possibilities of this medium and, at the same time, provides comprehensive information on materials and techniques.
