If you’re working with opaque materials, you can use an internal light to show openings or cracks in the massing, and if you are working with anything translucent, like plastic or resin, a well-placed light can turn your design into a luminous jewel. Concept models are a great way to shape a project at critical moments. Sometimes all you need to elegantly communicate an idea is to use a single sheet of paper. Textures can be added to the surface of your models depending on what material and how you choose to create your mould, and you can also pigment the concrete prior to casting in any colour of your choosing …creating quite a vast amount of variables. You can make a mold out of almost anything, provided you coat the surface in petroleum jelly or some other water-resistant material, and inexpensive concretes are common in art or hardware stores. eval(ez_write_tag([[468,60],'archisoup_com-box-3','ezslot_11',665,'0','0']));Even with today’s many means and methods of presenting architecture, physical architecture models still provide one of the most powerful and engaging presentation techniques, and concept models are no different. It’s a succinct summary, the well-phrased sentence that sums up a novel, the basic principle that keeps an experiment on track.

Resin requires a similar technique to concrete in the way of mould making and the curing process, but with a much more labour intensive process required. Photo courtesy Christian Kerez.

That said, the final results can be stunning and with its high level of difficulty you may be the only one using this method. Ideas for concept models can come in all manner of shapes and sizes and from all types of materials, in fact the more experimental a model is, generally speaking the more successful it is. Image courtesy Díaz & Díaz Arquitectos. With a little finesse, it is possible to get almost any finish you could want. Your models should be pushed, pulled, stretched, rotated, taken apart, reassembled, simplified, mirrored …anything you can think of that may help with your projects and ideas development.eval(ez_write_tag([[728,90],'archisoup_com-box-4','ezslot_9',669,'0','0'])); ...and or course experiment with as many different materials as you can, until you find the correct fit. Stacks of paper can be carved into or bound together, creating an unexpected feeling of depth. Photo courtesy Allied Works. If you can afford it, sculpted resin models are dazzling showstoppers. As mentioned above, concrete is one of our favourite materials to work with when model making, however its not suited to every project nor is it a quick process. Wood’s the most obvious material, but plaster or cork are workable, too. (Right) Solstice Pavilion model by Takk Architecture. Nothing is more dramatic than a glowing model. Spray-paint it gold and watch your idea shine. (Left) Found Architecture by Sou Fujimoto. There should be a certain level of interpretation, and they should never represent the final building, (that’s a whole different type of architectural model), but show a piece of it .

Model making at this level and stage in a project provides a very loose and tactile method of working, which above all else is fun (and so it should be!). Once the files are set up, this can be a very quick way of achieving lots of united models. 3D printing at any scale can be expensive and time consuming, and so in most circumstances it is not suited to the quick of the cuff development models. If you try out a handful of different materials and techniques and present them together as a sequence, they can give your presentation richness and charm. If you’re really in a rut, reach for the last thing you would expect to see on a model stand. Artfully folded or cut, paper can be an economical means of exploring a surface’s form (and not just the Gehry kind). Are you a manufacturer looking to connect with architects? There’s nothing wrong with the usual foamcore, chipboard or blue foam models, but there’s a whole world of ideas out there. Copyright © 2020 Archisoup. As we discuss below, a concept model can be created out of just about anything and be as simple or complex as it needs to be. Photo courtesy Takk Architecture. (Left) model for the House of Culture and Movement by MVRDV. The results might literally be garbage, but at least they will be something you haven’t tried before, and eclectic but carefully curated assemblages can give your model and presentation a clever sense of humor that’s pretty hard to get out of sheets of white foamcore. Examples of concrete concept models here. A concept model can be used to enforce a thought process, emotion, feeling, sketch or even a piece of writing; helping to describe and communicate the thinking processes of the architect/designer to the client, design team, colleagues, tutors or even just to themselves.

For example they can be used to investigate: The vertical and and horizontal planes (plans and elevations). (Left) model by Díaz & Díaz Arquitectos. No one probably ever thought that needed to be said. Concept models can be used to express any number of your projects elements and/or features, the direction you choose to go down is really dependant on where your concept is being derived from. We have a selection of examples here and as you can see from the below, there are many options to choose from in terms of materiality. eval(ez_write_tag([[300,250],'archisoup_com-banner-1','ezslot_13',849,'0','0']));As well as being a presentation tool and technique, your models also create and document a particular time in your design process, that demonstrates the projects progression and the journey taken to achieve the finished product.

Rough concept models can be great because they let you quickly sketch out a lot of different options. It can however be an excellent choice for your final concept model, but be mindful of the price it will cost and the time required to set up the 3D model. It can be used in many ways by cutting, bending, twisting and folding, in fact there is a very good by Paul Jackson on this exact subject called Folding Techniques for Designers: From Sheet to Form (Amazon link here). Casting can seem cumbersome because there are so many steps and it is often really messy, but it’s one of the simplest ways to create a truly monolithic model.
