Description

Despite the advent of digital visualisation software, the non-digital or analog scale model remains a centrepiece of design education, certain celebrated practices and architecture's public relations. Indeed, model manufacture has only become more pervasive since the development of laser cutting and rapid prototyping devices. A wide diversity of use leads architects to consider their application, and it is only with the rise of the virtual that the advantages and disadvantages of more traditional models can be fully evaluated. This is a turning point for practitioners and educators to understand the multiplicity of model types and functions in an effort to strategically deploy the right sort of model at the appropriate stage in the design process.

Models: Architecture and the Miniature focuses on current model use and experimentation by architects across the globe including David Chipperfield, Peter Eisenman, Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, Coop Himmelb(l)au, Daniel Libeskind, Greg Lynn and UN Studio.
