Architectural models: thinking through making

Architectural model making, whereby the designer constructs in miniature their vision is as old as the discipline itself. It is an essential creative step in the building process, a means for the architect to explore their concept in a three-dimensional fashion before a project is built.

Though they are rarely meant as a finished product in themselves, these models can be works of art. As they are often part of the process rather than the end-goal, they are rarely available for public viewing and spend most of their time sitting on shelves in storage or tucked away in a corner of the office.

For SDT 2021 Solid Floor is showcasing a collection of diverse models of their regular clients as well as local architects, celebrating the concept of thinking-through-making.
