small models communicate big moves.

Sep 09, 2021

Sometimes, a project just needs a little study model. Acting as a form of three-dimensional sketching, a small-scale study model can help us quickly visualize and manipulate forms and spatial relationships. It can communicate the big moves on a project, something the digital realm will, at times, fail to achieve.

This particular example for a private residence is a 1:20 scale study model created using a combination of building information modeling (BIM) software, 3D printing, and handmade elements, proving that often the physical and digital tools can work together in harmony.
