architecture models physical
1971 to present



Three-dimensional scaled models, are an exceptionally good way to help clients visualize
design concepts and spatial relationships.

These architectural study models are primarily made out of matte and illustration boards
and are sometimes detailed with balsa wood and other materials.

CAD Plans are printed on bond paper and then glued to an illustration board base.
Wall elevations are cut from illustration board with a matte knife, trimmed and cleaned up with a Dremel tool,
and then assembled onto the printed plan base.

Most residential study models include interior spaces with each level of floors and interior partitions separate
from the exterior envelope so they can be taken apart for better viewing.
