Example text

Considerable care should be used when cutting this material, as the resultant dust can be very harmful. grain making it suitable for carving, planing, turning, block cutting and almost all other woodworking processes. It has traditionally been used by pattern makers because of its resistance to warping due to its grain structure. Ideal for block/massing models. Mahogany – a hardwood historically used to make furniture, this is fine grained, dark reddishbrown in colour and very durable. Veneers of this material are more commonplace in contemporary modelling than solid blocks.

E. the ability and creativity of the modelmaker, may become developed and refined through experience but the best modelmakers acknowledge that keeping an openness to possibilities is key to their approach. In the first instance, therefore, the architectural modeller needs to decide on the level of abstraction. Abstraction All models, by the very nature of their existence, display a degree of abstraction, as there would be very little point to a model if it represented reality in every aspect. Most importantly, this level of abstraction should be consistent as it would not make sense to model a building’s context accurately and then insert a very loosely defined and highly abstract model of the design proposal in most situations.

Finally, the main area of blue acrylic indicates the masterplan build envelopes. The model was only A4 size but photographed well, with low-angled lighting from each side which was picked up by the acrylic. 60 Media Above The accuracy that can be gained using plastics is clearly demonstrated in this concept model, which consists of a series of similar parts carefully mounted so that, whilst it may be possible to read some spatial qualities into the model, its sculptural properties are much more prominent and we may be less certain about the intended scale by looking at the object alone.
