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.
