The architectural model – or maquette – is a key tool for composing and communicating the process of an architectural design. While designs can give information on a two-dimensional level, the model can express spatial proportions, qualities and ideas in three-dimensional form. Thus, the maquette becomes an instrument of communication and compositional process, helping to resonate spatial qualities, explaining the main concepts, as well as the ability to predict possible problems and their resolutions.
The construction of an architectural maquette combines artistic expression and technical skills,which stands not only a mere representation of the idea, but as a unique creation in itself. The choice of scale, its construction materials, the degree of detail it presents, are just some of the parameters that are defined depending on the purpose of creating the maquette.
This workshop is an introduction to the construction of architectural models and its various applications, scales, materials and techniques. It will also encourage each participant’s personal expression, curiosity and ability to source diverse inspirations for the construction and presentation of architectural models.
The workshop is suitable for students preparing a portfolio for admission to Schools of Architecture and Interior Design, for students currently studying in relevant specialties which specialization and finally for amateur and professional designers and artists who want to enrich their skills.
