The ancient craft of architectural model making may seem unnecessary in today's age of digital renderings and virtual tours, but physical models remain a uniquely revealing and compelling tool for the architect.

More forcefully than any other way of visualizing a building, models represent ideas, as opposed to images.

The sensory impact of a physical model, its materiality, is an important step in the design process.

Once an idea is materialized, it exists in the real world, and the real world reacts – with limitations or opportunities, which become clear through the process of making.

A model not only allows the designer to explore freely while testing out specific ideas but also to advance and communicate his or her ideas effectively to others.
