Description

Architects models serve as bridge between an idea and its realisation. Models are one of the three means by which an architect invents and develops his design: sketchmodelcomputer model. No other representational form is as effective in enabling the viewer to perceive the spaces, shapes, surfaces and textures created by the architects 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.
